"My time with Anthony Belli played an immeasurably important role in mytransformation from an engineer to hardcore, street-smart sales professional. Countless milestones later, I received [my company's] highest lifetime career achievement honor. Thank you, Anthony, for helping me write my own script in life."--Michael Burton, Principal Technical Consultant, St. Jude Medical Cardiac Rhythm Management

"Having myself grown up in an ethnic, blue-collar Boston community,the legitimacy of a 'street-smart' way of doing things intrigued me.

The lessons he teaches can, inmany instances, be applied to any profession, whether in sales or not."--From the Foreword by Joe Mandato, DM, Fellow, Advanced Leadership Initiative, Harvard University
