Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hutson (CEO, U.S. Learning), coauthor, with Ken Blanchard, of the No. 1 Wall Street Journal best seller The One Minute Entrepreneur (2008), here teams up with Lucas (The Contented Achiever) to tackle the challenging skill of negotiation. The authors use case studies to illustrate their strategies for successful negotiating—emphasizing the importance of flexibility and the ability to adapt—offering tips for selecting the strategy that best fits the realities of a given situation. They pack a lot of learning into a short framework, though fewer anecdotes might have allowed for more solid substance. That said, this work nicely extols the tradition of Blanchard's "one-minute" approach to various leadership challenges and will appeal especially to those new to the responsibilities of management. Hutson himself reads; his crisp narration keeps things moving at a nice clip. [Includes a bonus CD with a PDF featuring a self-assessment tool, a negotiation strategy matrix, and a glossary; more at theoneminutenegotiator.com.—Ed.]—Dale Farris, Groves, TX
