There are hundreds of sales books that promise to teach you how to grow your sales. Below are four sales books to help you build an effective sales strategy in your optometric practice.

4 Resources For Improving Optical Dispensing Sales Strategies

The Science of Selling

"The Science of Selling" by David Hoffeld uses psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics to provide an evidence-based approach to:

  • Asking questions
  • Avoiding objections
  • Guiding your buyer


This classic book from Dr. Robert Cialdini explains the six psychological principals behind why people say “yes” and describes how to use these principles to become a skilled persuader.

The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever Need

The writer behind TheSalesBlog.com, Anthony Iannarino, compiled everything he’s learned about successfully selling into one book that explains how effective salespeople build upon a powerful skill-set of self-discipline, accountability, competitiveness, resourcefulness, storytelling, and diagnosing to increase sales.
