Recommendation

Steve Gates, a negotiation consultant, takes a balanced approach – exemplified in his conceptual tool, “the negotiation clock face” – that makes this manual valuable for negotiators with a wide range of skills and approaches. Gates is refreshingly honest. He incorporates the lessons of a half-dozen other books on the topic, and renders most other texts on the subject obsolete.

  • How to become a better negotiator.
