Here, Philip Delves Broughton, author of the bestselling What They Teach You At Harvard Business School, journeys around the world meeting business legends from all walks of life. Their stories are insightful, hilarious and compelling. Revealing their secrets and tips, Life's a Pitch also shows how mastering the art of selling will help you master the art of life.
