Michael Tucker and Petra Epperlein's *Bulletproof Salesman*Early on in Bulletproof Salesman, Fidelis Cloer illustrates his nature when he says of a peace protester "Go away, I want war." To his credit, he doesn't shout it at the lone demonstrator.

We follow salesman Cloer as he demonstrates his wares in Mesopotamia while the war rages on. He's a realist who knows there's no such thing as an impervious armored vehicle. He does sell a good product, though, and his company learns from its mistakes. You may pay extra for a nice-looking armored vehicle, but if you pay more, your chances of living increase.

Cloer lets a client shoot him in his car as he drives around for him. He's showing not only confidence in his product but proof that he makes pretty good money on his it: he must make enough profit so that he's able to pay for the repair of a demo model to make a sale. He also sells body armor and other assorted things needed during a time of war.

I can't hate him for making a living. He's a charismatic fellow who knows how to survive a hostile sales floor. He has no problem making money in a terse Middle-Eastern situation. If it weren't Cloer, it would be someone else. He sells a quality product in a world that needs it. His is an interesting story, but not so compelling that I can say "You must see this!"
