Never thought to read a sales book like this but I liked her point about trying to teach the "customer" something new.

Radical Candor. Dr. Escobedo discussed this during his webinar on transitioning from academia to the workplace. A big piece of his advice was focused on being open to feedback and building a network of mentors.

I would recommend The Artist's Way. I've just started it, but honestly think it's fantastic. It came recommended to me by a mentor and a colleague, both who work in entertainment, and were seeking guidance on how to tell their story and craft an engaging message. I think improv and creativity are really critical skills for problem solving and especially interviewing.
