Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend, because it prepares you for the nastiness in a negotiation. You will learn not to be derailed by your own emotions (resentment, fear, anger, dissappoitment, etc) and achieve the final results. What I love about this books is that it does not sound like something taught in a classroom. I have read several books on negotiation, on different aspects of negotiation. This is the first book that tells you how nasty a negotiation in the real world can be. I realize, with two years working experience dealing with customers and colleagues, how well you handle emotions plays a pivotal role in how well you execute the principles. You can memorize everything the books describes, but in the end you are likely to be derailed by your own emotions. This book tells you upfront what to expect in a negotiation: "a lot of shit" and a lot of work, but with "a pony" as your grand prize. Through all the stories, this books shows only if you handle the shitty part successfully, will you find a pony. That pony is probably going to different from what you originally have in mind, but somehow still satisfying. The good advice on preparing documents, building relationships and gathering information are valuable. Ross is an excellent story teller. This books sometimes give the feeling of listening to your uncle by the fireplace. The narrator did a good job.

What does Milton Bagby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has deep solid voice, and read at a consistent pace. The voice like that carries experience and credibility. I guess those qualities make him a good narrator for a reputable lawyer like George Ross.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book contains advices that are important. So I don't think one should finish it within one sitting. You would spend your money and time in vain if you didn't taken the advice but only laughed at the stories. For example, the way to prepare documents are described like protocols, you would want to pause and write down what Ross suggested. I think this is where a .pdf companion book comes handy. Hopefully the publisher can provide that in the future.

Any additional comments?

One frustrating thing is that there is no kindle book directly purchasable on Audible. You have to buy it separately from amazon.

Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

Mourn my wasted audible credit on "Eat, Pray and Love". which ruined my 2-hour run. She was whining, whining and whining. She imagined herself to be the most tortured person, as if there is no starved children in Africa or homeless people in Pakistan, or kidnapped families in Columbia.... The first chapter was beautifully written, though.
