Og Mandino was one of the most widely read inspirational and self-help authors in the world. His 14 books of wisdom, inspiration, and love have sold more than 36 million copies worldwide in 18 different languages. Og was the first recipient of the Napoleon Hill Gold Medal for literary achievement. He was also one of the most sought-after speakers in the country.
Og struggled as a life insurance salesman after World War II. Already in deep debt, his wife and daughter left him after he developed a drinking problem. Og started making visits to the public library, reading books on success and motivation. His drinking gradually subsided. Og was so impressed with the work and success philosophy of W. Clement Stone, that he got a job as a salesman at Stone’s insurance company and was promoted within a year.
Og soon became editor of Stone’s magazine, Success Unlimited. After writing a piece about golf for the magazine, a New York publisher sent him a letter about possibly publishing a book if he were to write one. The Greatest Salesman in the World was soon published and became a bestseller. Thousands of people have openly credited Og with saving or changing their lives.

The Greatest Salesman in the World is one of the most inspiring appealing books that I have ever read, and it is not only for salespeople. Reading this book is clearly the best way to get started with Og Mandino. First published in 1968, it remains an invaluable guide to a philosophy of salesmanship.
The Greatest Salesman in the World is written as a parable set in the time just prior to Christianity, and it integrates mythology with spirituality into a valuable message of inspiration. At the heart of the book is the story of 10 Scrolls that can empower each of us to be more successful.

Scroll I. Today I begin a new life.
Scroll II. I will greet this day with love in my heart.
