"Rantings of a Machine Tool Salesman" Book Signings at IMTS 2018

"Rantings of a Machine Tool Salesman" book by Scott Walker

Scott Walker, Chairman of Mitsui Seiki USA, Inc., has penned a book called "Rantings of a Machine Tool Salesman," a sometimes funny, sometimes serious, sometimes sentimental selection of the author's favorite bi-weekly newsletters that were included in each employee's paycheck envelope over the past twenty years. The topics range from the highs and lows of sales calls, balance sheets, holidays, winning and losing orders, hobbies, manufacturing technology and business travel.

"It is about the business of selling machine tools, through my filter, so there is plenty of philosophy, inspiration and wine tossed in," said Walker.

Scott Walker will be signing books during IMTS 2018 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - September 11, 12 and 13 - from 1 PM to 3 PM in Mitsui Seiki's booth 338519 in the South Building of McCormick Place. The book will also be available on beginning Tuesday, September 11. The cost is $23, which includes tax and a contribution to charity.

"I never planned on writing a book," said Walker. "As a dyslexic growing up in the 1950s and `60s, before the condition was addressed in the school system, I avoided reading and writing and did not study much. What I did was listen and talk and memorize my way through school. Once I started painting in oils - landscapes mostly - something clicked in my brain, and I could read and write exponentially better. I am always looking for the next good read and essentially kept a work journal in the form of a newsletter for 20 years."
