ABRIDGED version

This is the abridged version. The informatino in it is fairly basic... but good. The major downside is that it's abridged. The actual book has a lot more content than this audio version has to offer.

I was hoping to purchase the unabridged version but got this by mistake.

It's okay for content... but not worth the money. Buy the unabridged version and you'll be much happier. If you can't find an unabridged version - just go buy the book.

Skipped through a lot of the story.

I was very disappointed in this audiobook, for it skipped through the book and left out all of crucial details that Herb goes into.

Disappointing

What was most disappointing about Herb Cohen’s story?

It was very short and too generalistic to be of any value at all.

Any additional comments?

A waste of my hard-earned money.

Too Short

What disappointed you about You Can Negotiate Anything?

The audiobook was way too short.

What was one of the most memorable moments of You Can Negotiate Anything?

It felt like I was finished eating a quarter sliced sandwich. There was something there but is wasn't very satisfying

What about Herb Cohen’s performance did you like?

Very clear and easy to listen too, even at high speed. 2.5 and 3X

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from You Can Negotiate Anything?

Cut nothing add more.

Very informative, highly recommend.

In this book, Cohen lays out his tried and true methods of negotiation, without imposing any previous knowledge, or experience on the reader/listener. He provides analogies, and example situations to express these ideas in a clear, and easily understood manner.

Time, Power and Information

Herb is a master negotiator. He identifies the three elements of negotiation (Time, Power and Information), and shows how though controlling these elements, you can control the outcome of any negotiation. If you are a sales professional committed to success, this is the best investment you can make in your career.
