Publisher's Summary

Are you the parent of an argumentative teen or are you a teen with an argumentative parent? Are you anticipating an argument with your boss when you ask for a raise? Are you expecting trouble from a supplier, contractor, landlord, or subordinate? Or do you just ignore conflict situations hoping that they'll magically disappear or solve themselves?

The art of argument: It's mysterious and powerful. It's the art of having things go your way. But it's also the art of getting out of your own way. It's having The Moves. But it's also about having The Touch.

Arguing. There's the rough and tumble of the norm, the amateur's game. Then there's the pro's game: always knowing what to say, how to say it, and when to say it. Winning arguments without quarreling, squabbling, tussling, wrangling, bickering, raising your voice, losing your cool, or coming to blows. Winning arguments without bulldozing and browbeating the other guy. Winning arguments by finessing rather than forcing, kickin' butt, or being in the other guy's face. Winning arguments without offending or embarrassing anyone, including yourself. Winning arguments with confidence, grace, and ease.

Just doesn't do it

Was hoping for a book with a few good debate tactics. This gets philosophical and nonsensical. You won't feel like you have anything to apply from this book in your next argument, it gives you nothing.

In one ear, out the other, lots of mediocre advice

What didn’t you like about David Drummond’s performance?

David's performance was fine. It was the book by Robert that less than impressive that was the issue.
