This is an auction for GOOD IN A ROOM by Stephanie Palmer.

Amazon.com review.

“Whether you work in Hollywood or not, the fact is that selling ideas is difficult to do. The reason the pitching secrets of the most successful writers and directors are relevant is because these people have evolved an advanced method for selling ideas. Whether you’re a screenwriter, a journalist with an idea for a story, an entrepreneur with a business plan, an inventor with a blueprint, or a manager with an innovative solution, if you want other people to invest their time, energy, and money in your idea, you face an uphill battle. When I was at MGM, the hardest part of my job was saying “No” to an idea that was almost there. I had to say "No" a lot. Every buyer does. The buyer’s work is to say yes to projects that are ready, not almost ready. And no matter how good the script is, if the seller can’t pitch it in a compelling way, how can the buyer see the potential? How can he get his colleagues on board? The fact is that poor pitches doom good projects. It happens all the time. The ideas, products and services that are pitched more effectively … win. That’s just how the game is played. No sense getting upset over it. Instead, let’s accept the challenge and learn the strategies and tactics that will allow us (and our ideas) to succeed.”
