A truly remarkable and wonderful guide.

Negotiation is one of the most important skills especially in business. Just imagine if you wanted to have a business and you don't know how to negotiate. Your business will only be put into waste. Every time you negotiate, you are looking for an increased advantage. This book delivers it. Such an impressive book about dark psychology. Actually this is my very first time that I listen this kind of book and I was so impressed on how it was written.
