Gerald L. Manning is an international author, consultant, speaker, and successful businessperson. Professor Manning’s book Selling Today: Partnering to Create Value, now in its 14th edition, is today’s international number-one selling textbook on negotiations and partnering. With Chinese, Spanish, International English–Speaking, Canadian, Croatian, and US editions, millions have profited from the strategies and tactics presented. He is author of four additional books on management and sales, all published by large, international publishing companies. Manning also serves as a sales and marketing consultant to senior management and owners of more than 500 businesses, including both national and international companies. He appears regularly as a speaker at national sales and management conferences, and is featured regularly in training videos on sales and management. Professor Manning served as chair of the Marketing/Management Department of one of the leading colleges in the country for more than 30 years.

He has also applied numerous negotiation and personal selling principles and practices as owner of a very successful commercial and residential real estate investment, development, and management company. Manning’s speaking and classroom experience, along with his consulting, and the management of his company have provided him a unique opportunity to research, study, test, refine, and write about personal selling. With this background, and a long-term partnership-type relationship with acclaimed training video producer Arthur Bauer, the Adaptive Selling Training Video Series was produced.
