Something different.

Delighted to hear something a bit different in the world of negotiation / conversation skills. A unique spin on a well publicised field. Something fresh but easy to follow.

Valuable and practical

Lots of valuable advice. Loved the case studies, I could relate to so many of them. Showed me perfectly how to handle different situations.

Enjoyed this a lot

Narrator was good but not excellent therefore giving that part 4 out of 5 but the rest definitely gets 5 out of 5. Gained a lot from this, feel much more confident to tackle negotiations of various types.

Used these methods at work.

I work in a busy office and sometimes I feel discussions / negotiations to be quite difficult.

I am not a genius / expert after this book but I *AM* a lot more capable and confident, as was shown in a discussion this week, therefore I am happy to leave a positive review.

Shocked about how useful this was.

Wasn't sure what to expect as I felt I already knew a lot in this field but I have to say I am surprised about refreshing this book was. Had a new side to negotiation I had not considered before. Very good narrator too, kept me engaged throughout.

Unsubstantial. Nothing original either.

You won’t learn how to negotiate by reading this book. Lacks the rigour or theory of other negotiating classics by Fisher and Ury or G. Shelly. Skip this and go straight to either or both of those. Also found the writing style and narrator way too frivolous for my liking. More suited to a gossip blog than a serious book on negotiation.

A total waste of time...

That's probably the worst book I ever read. Absolute wasteof time. Filled with clichés that even kids know. The examples given are ridiculous and predictable. No new information inside. Nothing to learn or remember. Wouldn't recommend. One terrible book

valuable.

Got more from this than I first thought as to be honest the first 20 mins were a bit boring but after getting through that I was surprised by just how much valuable, interesting and unique advice this book contained.

Narrator was good, easy to listen to. Audio quality seemed very good, no issues at all.

Excellent guide.

I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to write a quick one for this book, as I not only really enjoyed it, I GAINED a lot from it which I am implementing in my personal and work life. Has given me a lot more self confidence in how to be assertive without being an idiot! Excellent guide, really recommend this one.

I have tried a lot of negotiation type books - sincerely, in my humble opinion, this is by far the best.

Thumbs up.

Third book I have gotten on negotiation type skills but this one was different. Better written and put together than the other ones so I am a happy customer.

New skills

Being blunt I came into this a little dubious as I thought I knew everything abut negotiation - turns out I was VERY wrong. Really enjoyed this one, first book in a while that has clicked with me
