Summary

Imagine how different your life would be if you could avoid getting the worst out of every deal you negotiate in life.

You will never quite know how much you have left on the table by lacking the negotiation skills to truly get the most out of your dealings. Whether it's negotiating that pay rise at work, attaining the best price for the house/car, or just simply getting more out of your daily interactions. All too often people fall short as they aren't equipped with the psychological strategies and behavior patterns to negotiate successfully.

Not anymore.

James Daugherty is an intelligence expert and former CIA Spy who specializes in all forms of human behavior. But there's one skill which is critical to getting ahead: negotiation. A spy would be a blunt instrument without it.

However he never realized quite how much his ability to negotiate high-level hostage situations whilst working for the FBI and key informant agreements whilst in the field as an American spy would help everyday people in civilian life.

I felt like I paid for what I got...

I selected this book bc I wanted to sharpen my negotiation skills. However, the author makes statements, but has no exercises for you to practice. Instead he talks about the negotiation tactic and tells you to practice. I felt like I learned nothing. I could have looked up negotiation strategies and practice on my own. Readers want exercises, homework or concrete examples with multiple scenarios to reference. Save your money, use google and practice on your own.

Sounded Baked

The material seemed okay; he was clear and concise in his presentation. However, it was hard to get past the narrator. I just pictured the guy holding a bong the whole time. Really monotone and unmemorable in nature.

5 Stars!!!!

This is a great book on negotiation, and it really changed my thinking about the topic. As someone that the author would describe as overly cooperative, I found that the book made negotiation seem approachable and doable by me. Most of the topics in the book seem like they're pretty obvious in hindsight, but they were new to me. In particular, the book emphasizes that anyone can bargain well by being themselves; you don't need to be competitive or manipulative to succeed.

What did you like best about this story?

Negotiation is one of the most important skills especially in business. Just imagine if you wanted to have a business and you don't know how to negotiate. Your business will only be put into waste. Every time you negotiate, you are looking for an increased advantage. This book delivers it.

Any additional comments?

This book brought up some good points concerning how to conduct yourself during negotiations and also highlighted common mistakes. It provides dynamics and strategies, to psychology, tactics and behaviors. The subject discussed in this book is one of the rarest topic that I encounter with books so for me, this is a must-keep.
