A NYC Fireman Out-Schemes the Track in Dutching the Book, New Novel Set in 1960s Brooklyn.

Hopewell, New Jersey (PRWEB) February 13, 2012

A NYC fireman takes on a challenge few have penetrated successfully; horse racing and gambling in Ritch Gaitis new novel, Dutching the Book. Based on actual people, betting schemes and events, the epic covers a scheme to beat the track in the 1930s and winds up the in the Sportsbook in Vegas decades later. Kirkus Reviews said that the book captures “the electric dynamism of horseracing…”

Just released, Dutching the Book, digs into the tests of lifelong friendship, family, gambling, horse racing, betting capers and a mans quest to pursue a dream. It is about four friends bound together by a loyalty that endured through decades, until it was broken. The Kindle Book Review said the book is: “mesmerizing historical fiction. Bravo!”

A departure from his humorous Tweet, Dutching the Book is Ritch Gaitis third book. It took ten years to tell this story. Says Gaiti, http://www.RitchGaiti.com, This is about a world that many of us touch, but dont go inside. But these guys were insidethey bent the rules and when the rules changedthey bent them again. The book is been based on interviews and personal contact Gaiti had with those that were still with us. This is a tribute to the guys who really lived it, Gaiti added, I knew them all.

The book is as much about unique characters, friendship and family in 1930s and 1960s Brooklyn as it is about gambling and the racetrack. These were ordinary people, not the kind of guys you see on TV; these were people you knewexcept they werent.

Dutching the Book is available in paperback and ebook on Amazon and ebook outlets (ebook: ISBN 978-09833837-1-0) and (paperback: ISBN 978-0-9833837-2-7).

Award-winning Business Authors Publish Novel Selling to Zebras, The Untold StoryFor Salespeople – Teaches Sales Process Through Fiction

Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

Following the success of Selling to Zebras: How to Close 90% of the Business You Pursue Faster, More Easily, and More Profitably, Jeff and Chad Koser did something novel. Literally. In Selling to Zebras, The Untold StoryFor Salespeople, the authors present their ideas within a fictional narrative. The novel tells the story of Kurt Kostner, the dedicated vice president and general manager of C3 Technology, who has been given an ultimatum: Turn sales numbers around in 90 days or pack up your things.

Telling the story from the sales perspective

The original Selling to Zebras book described the sales methodology developed by Kosers company, Selling to Zebras, Inc. The ZEBRAselling approach increases sales effectiveness by pitching the financial advantages of a companys product or service as heavily as features and benefits. In addition, interest and support of top management are sought early in the sales cycle for a shorter, more successful sales process.

The original book was written for the C-suite reader, but the new book is geared to the boots-on-the-ground salesperson.

Were salespeople at heart, says Selling to Zebras author, Jeff Koser. We understand the frustrations of implementing any new sales methodology. So we wanted to illustrate how the ZEBRAselling process works from the salespersons perspective. Telling it as a story enabled us to make it more engaging and real.

While the primary audience is salespeople, the book serves as an effective refresher on the sales process improvement strategy for anyone who read the first book.

Purchasing the book

The novel is available to the general public for $ 2.99 through Amazon and to Amazon Prime members for free through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.????Kindle apps are available for most devices, making Kindle e-book downloads readable on PCs, tablets and phones.????
