"… [A] good guide to negotiating skills… Gates does a sound job of explaining the processes and tricks of effective negotiating." (Director)
"…[R]ight from the start I was hooked… clear explanations and uncomplicated writing style…does what it sets out to achieve." (Edge)
I suppose being entertained is too much to expect? Or perhaps I am shallow. But here is a pretty comprehensive look at the topic, with some simple ways to model and think about it.
Love this book. I have both audio book and print edition. Like the different approach towards different types of negotiations rather than typical win win approach.
"visual book maybe better"
good listen. although a 2nd listen is required. I think a book maybe better to see the diagrams and digest a little more knowledge from the writer.
"Too theoretical, and not very interesting..."
The book was too theoretical. It was hard to listen to and it was way to long. I am sure the theory was good, but it was just not interesting to listening to. Unfortunately I will not recommend this book on negotiating.
No, I will look for another book on negotiation.
Have more exampels - from the real life.
