Very informative, well structured and enjoyable

As someone with no negotiating background, I always felt aimless when going up against those with a clear competitive streak, whether dealing with colleagues or buying a car. This book was very helpful in shining light the different negotiation types, personality types and how to be effective in use of this knowledge. There seem to be a ton of books on this topic. This one may be all you need.

Loaded with practical strategies, real scenarios

Mr. Shell has written a practical guide that I can actually use. He breaks things down and does not overwhelm the reader. He sets you up to understand what type of person you are, he gets you thinking about the other person in the negotiation. He reviews strategies. The summaries are a great touch. I felt as though by the end, I had someone really cheering me on and excited for me to succeed.
