What sales book would you recommend?

I am currently reading "Think and grow rich" and was wondering what other sales professionals are reading at the moment?

Is there any special recommendations out there? 

Please post a link if possible!

Man .. Napoleon Hill is a classic but boy that was a long time ago. The original and the best!

I found this list below on the sales hacker site .. looks like a good start to me! I like it old school so I grew up on Dale Carnegie and Zig Ziglar (I am an antique model) but I think this list is a great resource. A link to the post etc is below.
