Be prepared to be entertained, inspired and informed by and about the best in the business. The Soulful Salesman is the most comprehensive compilation ever assembled of America’s traveling salesman and saleswoman lore and laughs. Of interest and value to both layman and historian, The Soulful Salesman includes hundreds of tales, anecdotes, quotes and stories, epitomizing the unequaled force of these men and women of the road. The author has scoured some of the most revered depositories of Americana, including the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, and Chicago’s Newberry Library, to deliver this two-centuries-worth of wit and wisdom.

Solberg grew up as the son of a Fuller Brush Man, eventually becoming a door-to-door salesman, working his way through college by selling brushes brooms, and waxes. Following graduation, he taught high school English and journalism before working as a Chicago-area association and corporate public relations and marketing executive. Most recently, after completing his first book on the history of America’s traveling salesman—The Whizbangs of Oohs and Ahs—he was recruited by the Illinois Humanities Council to serve on the organization’s Road Scholar speaker’s bureau program for a two-year stint to speak about his favorite topic—the traveling salesman.
