A quick read laced with many illustrative examples ranging from mundane, everyday negotiations to negotiations surrounding world events that everyone knows, the book sets up a framework for negotiations that anyone can use in almost any situation.

The book lays out a four-step process based on the four elements of negotiation – people, interests, options and criteria – and addresses how to handle each. Later chapters cover more sophisticated and nuanced negotiation situations such as negotiating with a more powerful party, redirecting ad hominum attacks to bring focus back to the negotiation (and away from the people), and hard negotiation/dirty tricks.

Good insights, well-written without any fluff.
