The Way of the Road Warrior offers weary business travelers inspiration, advice, and practical skills for conquering the competition while conducting business on the road.  This business traveler’s handbook is written by Robert L. Jolles—salesman, consultant, professional speaker, and veteran “Road Warrior” who has logged more than twenty years and two million miles in the air.  In The Way of the Road Warrior, he delves into his personal journal and wealth of experience to offer insights on the sometimes difficult balancing act between work, travel, and family.

Robert Lewis Stevenson wrote, “The most beautiful adventures are not those we go to seek.” In these pages, readers will find that a chance conversation with a cab driver can be as valuable as a sit-down with a CEO.  Jolles also speaks to the dangerous and addictive aspects of business travel and doesn’t sugarcoat the toll it takes on those who wait at home. From beginning to end, The Way of the Road Warrior will teach you why business travel isn’t just a way to do your job, but a warrior’s path to insight, wisdom, and so very much more.

From the Back Cover:

The Handbook for Today's Road Warriors

If your work involves time away from loved ones, long trips across country, and endless searches for a laptop power connection, The Way of the Road Warrior will be the best traveling companion you can have for your next business trip.

Praise for The Way of the Road Warrior

"Rob Jolles does it again! The Way of the Road Warrior is an introspective and thoughtful exposé of life on the road that can benefit anyone in business, particularly those on the front line."
—Eli Jones, coauthor, Selling ASAP, and executive director, Sales Excellence Institute, University of Houston

"This book is both a surprisingly personal commentary and also a broadly applicable manual for business. We can all benefit from Rob Jolles' invaluable advice."
—David M. Rowell, publisher, The Travel Insider (thetravelinsider.info)

"A must-read for anyone considering a career that requires significant business travel. From my position in the front of the plane, I see the faces that are written about in this book. It is an informative, accurate, and empathetic assessment that anyone who travels, including pilots, should read, and learn from."
—Buzz Collins, pilot, Southwest Airlines

"One word best describes Rob Jolles and why he connects with his readers so well: he is genuine. People listen to him, trust him, and learn from him because he is authentic, because he's been there, and because we relate to him. Don't miss this book! As our trusted advisor, Rob shares some very special insights about pounding the pavement with us... his fellow Road Warriors."
—Joseph A. Sullivan, executive vice president, Legg Mason, Inc.

From the Inside Flap:

Does your job require you to travel? Tired of tasteless airplane food, sterile hotel rooms, and PowerPoint® meltdowns? Rob Jolles has some news for you. Nobody ever learned the real lessons of business and life in a cubicle.
