Another Book Review: Jungle Warfare by Christopher A. Cunningham

Jungle Warfare by Christopher A. Cunningham allows the reader a unique perspective on the sales industry. Subtitled “A Basic Field Manuel for Christians in Sales,” Cunningham uses instructions from an old WWI jungle warfare field guide as a parallel to the guidelines a Christian in the industry should follow. The book is brief, set in a 22 day devotional style with an FAQ section in the back.

While I found the concept intriguing, I must say that the description is a little misleading. As someone who is considering sales as a future job, I expected more of a how to survive style of instruction. What I found was more of a daily discipleship devotional. Each of the points presented should impact a Christian regardless of job field. Though Cunningham did attempt to tailor the topics to sales experiences, overall the subject was too broad to specifically address the sales industry.

I give this book 3 ½ stars for discipleship. Only 2 stars as a sales guide.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
