Negotiation Boot Camp

As a young entrepreneur, who engages in negotiation every day, I highly recommend this book. Great concepts that are so basic in a negotiation are put in to easy listening/reading format. The narration is good but the content is what is best.

Any additional comments?

I hate to give bad reviews because I can appreciate the work that goes into writing and publishing a book. That said, this book is terrible and I hate to think that novices to negotiation would read this and think themselves equipped to negotiate. This book is full of meaningless platitudes with little, if any direction of what to do. The only thing worse than the platitudes was terrible advice such as "try to negotiate the bill for services". To be sure, you can try to negotiate the cost of services with you attorney, accountant, or contractor after the service is complete. Even if you get a smaller bill you will likely ruin a professional relationship and if you do it a couple times you will get the reputation for this type of behavior. The only reason I'm not giving this book 0 stars is that there are a couple bits and pieces of decent information. The information isn't new or unique, you can find it in any other book on negotiation, but at least they are present here. If you want a better book on negotiation try "Negotiation Genius" by Deepak Malholtra and Max Bazerman.
