I got to know the concepts of this book during a workshop a couple of years ago, and finally got to read it. Some parts are quire boring and repetitive, but the concept of green and red zones is an important concept that everyone should know about.

There is a good deal to learn in those chapters about communicating in a fair and dignified manner.

The last half of the book seemed to deal almost entirely with negotiations between organizations. I did take a few lessons from this section, specifically: concentrating on interests instea
