9780060823641: Often Wrong, Never in Doubt CD

It's not a question. It is a philosophy to live by. It's Donny Deutsch's motto. And it is the secret possessed by every person with the right stuff—the one-in-a-hundred who gets to the top of their team, their company, their business, their industry.

If there is an assignment or a promotion up for grabs, a client or account looking for new answers, do you know how to go for it? Donny Deutsch built a billion-dollar media business asking himself the basic question, "Why Not Me?" Once the reader asks—and answers—that question, a world of opportunity opens up. It is a tool to motivate people, build a business, and create a business culture.

Often Wrong, Never in Doubt is an inspirational book from one of America's most colorful and exciting entrepreneurs. It's Donny's story. In a fun conversation with the reader, Donny lays out the core principles that propelled him to create tremendous wealth, build a huge and influential business, and become a national personality. Using inside stories of the media, the advertising industry, and a youth spent growing up on the streets of New York, Donny gives the commonsense bottom line that he has learned along the way, broken down into real, relevant, and inspiring lessons that will be useful to everyone from the front-line salesperson to the middle manager to the successful corporate executive. (It's also a useful guide for dating.)

About the Author:

Under Donny Deutsch's leadership as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Deutsch Inc., the company has grown into the nation’s premier cutting-edge advertising agency, with blue-chip clients, including Mitsubishi Motors, Johnson & Johnson, Revlon, Coors, Novartis, Expedia, Monster, and Old Navy. Both Advertising Age and Adweek have honored the $2.7 billion agency time and again as “Agency of the Year.” Informed, opinionated, influential, and funny, Donny recently launched a hip and irreverent CNBC talk show, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, which examines issues in pop culture, business, politics, the arts, and sports. He is also Managing Partner of the independent film production company Deutsch Open City. In presidential politics he was a lead member of the successful Clinton/Gore communications team. A graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Donny now serves on two prestigious boards: UPenn School of Social Work’s Executive Committee and the Board of Directors of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Peter Knobler has written best-selling books with James Carville and Mary Matalin, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Governor Ann Richards, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, and Sumner Redstone, among others. Peter is the former editor of Crawdaddy magazine. He lives with his wife and son in New York City.

From AudioFile:

Though his celebrity may sell it, it's Donny Deutsch's street smarts and humanity that make this one of the most enduring lessons on running a small business, in this case advertising. Part memoir, part primer on managing clients in a creative business, the material also discusses managing oneself with integrity, a healthy respect for other people, and an honest perspective on one's individual talents and contributions. With its strong writing and the narration of co-writer Peter Knobler, who reads with a Manhattan accent, this is an entertaining listening experience that is also motivating and inspiring without being explicitly so. A worthy addition to one's audio business library. T.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
