I use this book as the major text in my MBA negotiation course. Thompson does an excellent job of providing a research based understanding of the process of negotiation. Sure to appeal to anyone who appreciates a social scientist's view of the negotiating process.
A good supplement to my Negotiation class. I got more out of the hands-on practice sessions than reading the book, although the book actually warns the reader in the introduction that practice sessions would be needed.
