    Savvy, entertaining negotiation manual

    Negotiating is one of the most basic yet complex social interactions that people undertake. These sessions can be straightforward or highly strategic, and can involve the exchange of everything from sheep to global conglomerates. Since negotiations are the products of intense human relations, they produce great stories founded on basic social science and psychology principles. Author and professor G. Richard Shell has done a masterful job of presenting the art and science of negotiation. That must be why he is known as one of the most highly-rated business school professors in the U.S. This book is educational and entertaining, and contains great examples of negotiations from such varied sources as African tribes and J.P. Morgan. getAbstract highly recommends it to anyone who wants to find out more about this intricate social interaction. Learn exactly how to become better at getting what you want.

    Overall good negotiating book.

    Yes. This book will help you in almost every aspect of your life when it comes to negotiating. The ideas are clear and concise. My only beef with the book is the amount of information in some sections is a bit wordy. If you want to negotiate a car deal (why I personally bough the book to begin with) I'd encourage another book I found, 'Cars and People: How to Put the Two Together.' This book, however, is something that I will use throughout my life. Thanks to the author and many kudos.

    Winning Friends & Making Money!

    Whenever I anticipate business negotiations throughout the world, I have used this book as a invaluable reference source. The salient points given will work for all kinds of negotiations. 'Bargaining for Advantage' has made me many friends as well as a ton of money! (Ok, maybe not a ton.)
