Whether you are a new or experienced mediator, Mr. Mosten's new book contains a wealth of valuable information. While some of the book deals with the professional decision to pursue a mediation career, most of the book is focused on building a career as a mediator. Mr. Mosten discusses the mediator's development as well as marketing oneself as a mediator. A wonderful reference book for the Alternative Dispute Resolution professional.
