This is a great book on negotiating respectfully and productively, and is applicable to pursuits from parenting to job hunting, as well as to major international diplomacy if that's your kind of thing. It seems like the kind of book which would be useful to own and refer to over the years as one's experience increases.

I didn't give it a better score because I did find it a little dry at times, and would have liked to have seen more examples and anecdotes. I love an anecdote. The problem might be that I don't do a great deal of difficult negotiation in my life, and so don't have personal experiences to which I can apply the advice as I read.
