From the Jaws of the Dragon
From slices of water pie to being passed off as a
cast member of the 1970s hit Broadway show Hair, Richard Plinke takes the reader on a magical carpet ride through his humorous, fractured view of the world of selling. As Plinke writes in the Introduction, "This book is not your father's Oldsmobile when it comes to sales." From The Jaws Of The Dragon is
a collection of blogs, articles and essays from Plinke's fertile and unique perspective on the art of sales, all tied together in a neatly disguised package of life lessons, applicable to anyone who faces the grind of earning their daily bread, regardless of professional persuasion.

The second installment of Richard Plinke's ongoing fight against the overwhelming odds of dancing in the jaws of the dragon, Richard Plinke's graphic metaphor for a lifetime spent in sales. With one hilarious anecdote after another, seemingly disjointed and arbitrary, but blended together in a tasty stew of style, entertainment and enlightenment. Plinke states, "Finding success is much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle, and if you want it to work, you have to deal with it one piece at a time. Each piece needs to fit into its proper place to create the complete picture."
