Excellent advice!

I listened to this book a few months ago and was a little skeptical whether the advice was realistically applicable to real-life situations, but I decided to try.
I was up for my annual review at work, and decided to prepare more thoroughly than usual by supporting the conversation with printed materials.
I had news articles mentioning things I had worked on, screen shots and training material I had used that showed how my work was being used and developed. I had printed some emails illustrating how I had handled tricky situations, especially on issues I had previously had comments about.
I printed material I found showing the average incomes for similar positions as mine showing a spread of which my current income was at the lower end, as I felt my results merited positioning in a higher category than previously.
The end result was that they asked to keep all the printed material I had brought, and asked for some time to reconsider the 5% raise that was on the table. Two weeks later I got a new offer for a 15% raise as a direct result of listening to this book.

Not what I was looking for.

I was looking for a book to help negotiate my current salary, not tips to negotiating salary for a new job. I felt this could have been stated more clearly in the description. Nevertheless, the book does have some interesting tips for those looking to switch companies.
