Overview

Negotiating Your Salary: How to Make $1000 a Minute has sold more than 250,000 copies because career professionals recommend it and it's better paid readers who applied the strategies, tell their friends. The 7th edition makes it easier than ever to put thousands of extra dollars into one's pocket because of the many key concepts that have been added to the "bible" of salary negotiations.

Salary Negotiating has become even more user-friendly. Besides updating all the Internet references and e-tools, and addresing the challenges of negotiating in a melted down economy, the whole logical flow of the book is upgraded. The flow of the negotiating process itself is easier to understand and implement.

In addition to the basic rules of negotiation, $1000 a Minute tells readers when to apply them. The book is reorganized to tell: What to do at the start of the job search, how to "dodge" the salary issue during the job search, what to prepare before a job interview, when to enter into negotiations, and what order to ask for things. Special training is provided in how NOT to jeapordize the offer you have and still negotiate for the offer you want.

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!
