I thought when I first look at this book it was for business women. I could not have been more wrong. This book offers useful information that every woman can use in her every day life-- how to negotiate, not only with your boss but with your husband, your children and with the President of the local PTA. I find by using the techniques in the book I get more of what I want more often.
