Summary of Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher, William Ury, and Bruce Patton | Includes Analysis

Preview:

Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher, William Ury, and Bruce Patton is a guide to using principled negotiation techniques rather than positional bargaining that makes for less successful negotiations. Positional bargaining occurs when two people argue over a particular concession, usually reaching an arbitrary compromise. In those instances the agreement usually does not address the interests of both negotiators. Principled negotiations find more creative, wise outcomes to conflicts....

Inaccuracies in critical elements from text.

Executive summaries can be very useful but only if the essence of the subject matter is accurately delivered. One of this text's most fundamental principles is called "Best Alternative To A Negotiated Agreement" and referred to by acronym "BATNA." After describing what the acronyn stands for, the narrator incorrectly refers to "BANTA" for the remainder of the recording. While this may seem like nitpicking, this detail is a bedrock principle to the entire negotiating method. Such carelessness leads the listener to wonder what other details have been overlooked in this and other Instaread recordings.

Still too long.

If this is really all this book has to offer, let me give it to you in one line... Negotiate from the same text.
