Getting Past No contains many of the techniques and ideas that are fully developed in the original "Getting to Yes." If you are looking for a quick read, this is good - otherwise, I would go for the "full" version.
I needed a quick 'tutorial' before answering a difficult person that I am currently negotiating with. This was great. In 2 short hours, I had a pocketful of ideas which I used (and they worked!). It was very helpful to me. If the only available versions had been the longer ones (6 hours) , I probably would not have listened to anything, and not gained this valuable information.

The book is Ok for a 2 hours listen, but I have read/listened to much better books. It starts very slow also yet gradually catches up.
Quick review of getting to yes and how to apply the approach with difficult people. Good examples ranging from personal to corporate. Excellent advice for work and home
Simple tools to help you deal with a difficult negotiation and make your adversary your partner in problem-solving instead.
I've always been a little skeptical on the practical use of the methods found within books like this. However, after giving it a try there actually is some validity to what is in this book. I was astounded! I highly recommend this book!
It might be a good book on paper, but this audio version is full of very annoying sound effects and pauses in speach
