I've often heard of Og Mandino's book -- The Greatest Salesman in the
World. What I never realized until I picked it up, was that Og
actually tells his 'secrets of success' through stories, rather than
any other method. It is probably what made people call him the
"Greatest Writer in the World".
There can be no greater testiment to the power of storytelling, than
the popularity of his books and the number of people who respect him.
(For those who didn't hear, Og Mandino died on Tues Sept 3rd of
natural causes. Here in Ottawa, I'm giving a special presentation in
tribute to Og Mandino...featuring his last recorded presentation when
I met him for the first (and last) time in Dallas Texas June 1996.
The presentation is on Monday Sept 16 at the Your Business Center in
