Publisher's Summary

Negotiation is a way of life for the majority of us. Whether we're at work, at home or simply going out, we want to participate in the decisions that affect us. Nowadays, hardly anyone gets through the day without a single negotiation, yet, few of us are armed with the effective, powerful negotiating skills that prevent stubborn haggling and ensure mutual problem solving.
Fisher, Ury, and Patton cut through the jargon to present a few easily remembered principles that will guide you to success, no matter what the other side does or whatever dirty tricks they resort to. They include:

Don't bargain over positions
Separate people from the problem
Insist on objective criteria
What if they won't play?

Really didn't like this one.

it might just be me but the book seemed pretty repetitive. A whole book to get across just a couple of key points which in truth felt pretty obvious. Maybe that's the point maybe we overlook the obvious. Anyway I didn't feel I got much from this one.
