Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where I share the first paragraph sometimes two from a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. I purchased this eBook on Amazon a while ago and think it sounds good in a quirky kind of way.
My Name is Russell Fink; Michael Snyder
Zondervan Press - 2008
"My conscience must be out of order.
Otherwise I'd feel at least a tinge of guilt as I consider making this call. Only two reasons exist for dialing this number: first, to inform Max Hengle III that I'm about to land a big sale, and to say this is rare would be an understatement. It's happened exactly twice. And neither transaction was the result of any Herculean effort on my part, more like fortuitous timing or dumb luck. But this did not prevent me from taking full credit. Sales is a tough business.
The second reason for dialing this number -- the egregiously more common reason--is to call in sick. One could argue hypochondria, but I prefer preventative maintenance. Still, I contend that over the life of my career, these measures will have made me a happier and more productive employee. And who wouldn't want a whole stable full of happy and productive employees?"
What do you think -- keep reading or pass?
