Do you think sometimes you miss opportunities, large or small?
Do you sometimes wish you could have said something just a little differently because it could have benefitted you greatly?
Do you want to capitalize on life?
Well, then I recommend you read this book.
I have read this book more than any other book and probably more than my next top 5 (# 2-6) combined.
You will benefit from having listened to this book quickly and demonstrably if you take it to heart.
I have encouraged my family and friends to use the tools taught herein and believe they will benefit you as well.
Mr Diamond notes that his book is no secret sauce. He has no magic abilities. He offers a systematic and considered approach to daily interactions that will support you in getting more! Enjoy over and again
I love to read books about business, getting things done, soft skills, and technology.
Marc Cashman's tone and fluidity perfectly suits Getting more, where not only the message, but the message medium plays an important role in negotiation.
Stuart Diamond's wealth of examples that perfectly solidify each key principle are the most memorable moments in this book. Not only does this style of writing reinforce the meat of the book, it makes it much more enjoyable by giving relatable examples and stories.
This is definitely a book you should own and re-read annually. As always, this information will be lost unless you keep it in practice. If you're not sure you can do it alone, start this journey with a friend, or join an online community to keep yourself on track.
I would but I would say read "How to Win Friends and Influence People" first. I did it the other way around and found "Getting More" to be very similar in style, organization, and main points.
Just read "How to Win Friends and Influence People" first. And if you need more try this book out.
This book delivers the tools needed to get more and made me rethink how I negotiate. The book is mostly stories that help if you don't yet understand the concept of each chapter but are unnecessary if you understand the lesson of the chapter.
The narrator, Stuart Diamond was good but I found that I wanted more meat from the book rather than hear a bunch of anecdotes.
Considering that I listen while I drive it wasn't too bad. I would have put it down pretty early on otherwise.
The advice here is very practical and supportive examples are supplied in abundance. I'm ready to practice some of the suggestions more in depth and have already begun to do so with some success.
I am man who likes to learn either by reading or listening. There are so many good books it is hard to pick just one. I love this site!
this was an informative book from start to finish. I really learned a lot about negotiating from it. I will relisten to it again
Thank you for writing this book. What I liked about it was that I was able to deploy the tools while I was still in the chapter. As Stuart says,"None of this is rocket science." But it has given me the ability to plan how to getting more in a structured approach. To use a car analogy, it's like knowing when to apply the gas or the brake just the right amount.
The best part about the book was the it solidifying in my head that getting what and where you want is an incremental process and that we need to take the other parties with us. It can take time, but with the tools can also be expedited.
Definitely, this is one of those books that I plan on re-listening to at least once a year. The tools discussed in the book are incredibly powerful, and I imagine that a re-read every year is a fairly cheap way to keep them fresh in my mind.
I learned how to use different tactics to understand where someone is coming from and then how to negotiate with them to further both of your goals. Getting more is about *everyone* getting more – not you getting everything.
I've already used the techniques from this book with my mom, girlfriend, friends and sales clerks to negotiate everything from where to go for vacation to a free pair of glasses.
