I used Jack`s methods, but my boss said no raise even though i am doing a fantastic job, money is tight and no wiggle room with the budget, everyone MIGHT get a few pennies more , based on the legislative session

Jack's is the only book you need to read when it comes to salary negotiations--and he's the only coach you need who will show you how to "Earn $1,000 a minute"--had multiple offers on the table and was unsure what steps to take through this virgin territory; Jack's book gave me the skills and confidence to negotiate an additional $2,500 in sign-on bonus and $5,000 in annual salary! 'Nuf said--if in doubt, trust Jack Chapman!

'Negotiating Your Salary: How to Make $1000 a Minute' by Jack Chapman is by far the BEST book on this topic. It is concise & carries the 'nuts & bolts' of negotiation strategies and action-plans. By comparison, other noted authors on the subject -- Krannich comes to mind -- spend 4-times-as-many pages to over-explain the underlying psychology, weighing down the readers with too much information and extraneious sub-topics. Those books are suited for academics and HR professionals, but not for the job-seeker who simply wants precise guidance & is pressed for time. Having read at least 5 books on the topic, Chapman's book has been the one with which I have coached several of my friends & colleagues, one of which netted a $10K offer increase solely due to the book's strategies. Due to that, I gave several more copies of his book as Christmas gifts that year. More recently, I passed this book to 2 recent MBA-graduates, each of which gained sign-on bonuses & salary-offer increases during their offer negotiations last Spring (2003) -- despite having uphill battles as foreign citizens.

I have read 4-5 books on this topic -- this is by far the best. The others are too lengthy, more for academia or career-services professionals. But this one carries the nuts & bolts, along with the clear step-by-step methods & best advice that the other books gloss over or ignore. With this book, I have coached several colleagues & myself -- one of them got a salary offer $10,000 ABOVE what the company was initially offering. Another negotiated a sign-on bonus that was originally non-existent. When I first read it (in '99), I gave my closest friends copies of it for Christmas! How's that for an endorsement?

I loved this book. Jack Chapman offers a very well-written book that is clear and to the point. He gives useful strategies and examples to help you understand how to apply them. You can read this book in 2 hours and feel like you can go out and apply the advice. I read two other books that weren't as nearly as good and took much longer to get through. Chapman's book also offers some tips about how to keep a job journal in order to gain raises. I saw it as an 'extra,' and it's the reason I kept the book. I highly recommend it!
