I am a young entrepreneur. I am 24 married and love business books. Hopefully all these reads pay off in my business, eh?

    Getting to Yes is a straightorward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting taken - and without getting angry. It offers a concise, step-by-step, proven strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict - whether it involves parents and children, neighbors, bosses and employees, customers or corporations, tenants or diplomats.

    If you could sum up Getting to Yes in three words, what would they be?

    Efficient, effective, yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I feel like I just went from baby negotiator to toddler! Before I could grunt and cry to get what I needed, but now I have words to articulate exactly what I am thinking. This has helped me when I am talking to others because instead of taking the time to think through what the other person is saying I can sum it up by saying "oh, they are using aggression, maybe apply some negotiating jujitsu here".


    Which character – as performed by Dennis Boutsikaris – was your favorite?

    The "real life" examples in book were hard for me to relate with, and I think there was a handful of gloating going on. It was not to difficult to come up with my own personal examples as well though.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The way the book makes things so black and white and turned each negotiation into a step by step process, if they say try to attack you personally then you..., it makes you want to negotiate everything everywhere! Just to try out different tactics in different situations.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, it was good to re-read a chapter or two right before any negotiations that I had planned for that day, just to get the juices flowing.

    Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limitations, allowing others to take advantage of their kindness. Authors Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer Biblically-based ways to take control of your life and set healthy boundaries with parents, spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and even yourself.

    Story

    This book has great principles, I agree with what they have to say generally. The story format of teaching is hard for me, but studies show it sinks in more that way. I would recommend this book to people that regularly feel obligated by others.

    Michael Corleone is returning to the U.S. after the two-year exile to Sicily in which listeners left him in The Godfather. But he is ordered to bring with him the young Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Guiliano, who is the unofficial ruler of northwestern Sicily. In his fight "to make Sicilians free people", the young folk hero, based on the real-life Giuliano of the 1940s, has made both the police and the Mafia his enemies.

    Loved hearing the inner thoughts that you just can not get out of a movie. Second only to the original "The Godfather".
