Сотни фармацевтических компаний вступают в борьбу за своего потребителя-пациента. Многие входящие на рынок препараты схожи по составу, свойствам, формам выпуска, способам продвижения. Так почему одни средства назначаются врачами, а другие так и остаются в резерве? Почему один препарат становится известным, а другой, с практически такими же параметрами, включая цену, так и не оправдывает надежд производителя! Именно успешной работе медицинского представителя на местах и посвящена данная книга.
Snore turns every night into hell. Almost all families suffer from snore of the one of spouses. Men snore more often. But the origins of women's and men's snore are the same. I have been testing various treatment methods for four years and have personally felt their effect or, better to say, lack of any effect. As a result, I developed my own technique. And only after I've got convinced of its effectiveness, I wrote this book. I would like to thank my wife. Her persistence helped me find the way to overcome snore. It was not so easy. Follow my recommendations. Avoid the key factors provoking the snore. And you'll feel the positive result at once. My book is devoted to family couples. To husbands and wives. It is the wife who can promote the husband to take care of his health and nice sleep for the whole family. Show my book to your husband. You can get rid of snore! My best motivation was the words of my mother-in-law in the heading who said my father-in-law has never snored thanks to his little secret. And I have no secrets from you.
