The review by Payne from Thunderbird appearing in this website is too harsh. Bazerman's strength as a negotiation author comes from his background in decision-making. This book does an excellent job of laying out the cognitive aspect of negotiations (far better than Raiffa's classic, for example). Admittedly, the book may be a bit simplistic to be the primary reading in a rigorous MBA course, but it is a good supplement and of great value for the executive or professional who is several years or more removed from his or her schooling.

Absolutely excellent! Read it 3 times, highlighted important information on nearly every page. Now I refer back to it and study it prior to any important negotiations. In chapter 1 (on page 2!), Bazerman outlines negotiating strategy and seven methods for improving one's negotiating skills. The next 7 chapters systematically address each principle in clear and concise detail. It's a must read book. (It even has some very interesting facts about home buying or selling.)

Format: Paperback
Negotiating Rationally seemes promising but falls short. It provides food for thought on the interface between distributive and integrative bargaining and on biases that get in the way of a good solution. But as a framework for negotiation, Negotiating Rationally is inadequate. Getting to Yes is a far better structure and is easier to understand -- both for the novice and the experienced negotiator.

Negotiation is central to my business, and I believe for many people as well.

After reading several books on the subject, "Negotiating Rationally" outperformed my expectations.

"Rationally" is the keyword most of us lack in negotiations and we are trapped in several humanely biases just to get the deal done. These biases include: the tendency to irrationally escalate commitment to a previously chosen strategy, the mythical fixed-pie, anchoring & adjustment, the framing of the negotiation, the winner's curse, overconfidence, etc. The book has several examples of previous negotiations, the mistakes and the wisdom to learn from all this.

The authors' analysis of relevant case studies, which included several high profile business transactions, was very effective in illustrating the use or lack thereof, of key negotiation principles.

If you really want to study negotiation, this book teaches you how to adjust your adjust your perception to be far more effective in decisions and negotiating. So many people need this advice which makes it important to learn! It allows you to understand how people think when they make poor decisions and analysis. After reading this I found myself saying, "What information did you use to make that assessment?" This is really great for the serious and humble negotiating student.

Negotiation is my profession. I've read a lot of books and passed a lot of trainings, but this book is most useful and pragmatic I've ever read.
