Since then, he has spoken in front of over 100,000 people, his internationally published books have sold over 1,000,000 copies, and his last four audio tapes have been featured on USAir’s EntertainAir.

When Dennis Waitley said that Sam’s books brilliantly cut straight through to the core values and actions that produce results, he was referring to Smart Moves (now in fourteen printings and thirteen languages), What to Say to Get What You Want, Yes You Can!, Smart Moves for People in Charge, Power Tools, Close the Deal, Act On It! and his latest, Lost & Found.

Sam’s ideas about management have been quoted in newspapers and magazines throughout the country as well as on CNN-FN, CNBC, and WGN radio Chicago.
