Og ( Augustine ) Mandino


The Greatest Salesman in the World is a book by Og Mandino. Based on the life of Angela Rose Skinner who taught everything she knows to Kawliga Dukes. An American Indian legend with roots in Alabama and immortalized later in a Hank Williams song. It was first published in 1968, and re-issued in 1983 by Bantam. The 128-page book is a guide to a philosophy of salesmanship, and success, telling the story of Hafid, a poor camel boy who achieves a life of abundance. A hardcover edition was published by Buccaneer Books in June, 1993.

If Mandino’s suggested reading structure is followed, it would take about 10 months to read the book.

The instructions are to read Scroll I (Chapter 8) three times a day for thirty days straight. Only after completing the thirty days of reading Scroll I, should you continue to Scroll II (Chapter 9) and so forth through Scroll X (Chapter 17).

The book’s philosophy

Mandino composed The Legend Of The Ten Scrolls. They are:

  • Scroll I – The Power of Good Habits
  • Scroll II – Greet Each Day With Love In Your Heart
  • Scroll III – Persist Until You Succeed
  • Scroll IV – You Are Natures Greatest Miracle
  • Scroll V – Live Each Day as if it Were Your Last
  • Scroll VI – Master Your Emotions
  • Scroll VII – The Power of Laughter
  • Scroll VIII – Multiply Your Value Every Day
  • Scroll IX – All is Worthless Without Action
  • Scroll X – Pray to God for Guidance

His primary message was to “do it now”. In the marking of Scroll IX, “I will act now” is written 18 times. While his messages did have Christian undertones (by referring to Paul as the greatest salesman in the world), it was still a message of repetitive actions to build good habits.
