Secrets of Power Negotiating
Life is about negotiating. Whether it’s business, friends or even spouses, negotiating is one of life’s most valuable skills (the most basic skill is to realize that just about everything involves negotiation).
You don’t want to negotiate? Well, at least learn about the hard-nosed and dirty tricks that car salesman will try on you—and take the stress out of your next car purchase.
But negotiation isn’t limited to big purchases; it might mean a better table at a restaurant, an upgraded seat on an airplane or getting your five year old to do her chores (though I confess I still have much to learn here).
You’ll find no better value for your time or money than Roger Dawson’s Secrets of Power Negotiating. I prefer the audio CD format (about $14), but it’s available in paperback and even SD memory card (MP3). Audio CD is great for that otherwise unproductive time spent driving.
I predict that if you take the time to learn just a portion of what’s in Secrets of Power Negotiating, you’ll save yourself a considerable amount of money (or equivalent) over the next few years. Not many things have that kind of return on investment.
