I've landed my first sales job. Yay! Please recommend books I can read, classes I can take, and other things of that sort I can do to succeed in the field.

I'm starting off by taking an Intro to Sales 6-month diploma course at Ashworth College. I have 0% experience in a sales environment, but I'm making my goal right now to succeed and kick-ass at this job.
The job isn't straight sales, I don't think, as you get callers and it's mostly reading from a script. But it's also commission-based and they check in on you every few months to make sure you're doing well. Just to give a little background information. It's all over the telephone, no face-to-face sales and incoming calls only. Still, I'd like to be well-rounded in the area to eventually be able to move up and such.
