Life hasn't been the same since I put this book down,
This review is from: You Can Negotiate Anything: The World's Best Negotiator Tells You How To Get What You Want (Mass Market Paperback)
This is one of the best business books I have ever read. It has given me invaluable insight to the art of making the deal. Herb Cohen gives you the rules of the playground in laymans terms like no other educational book I've read before (and I've read alot of them).
This isn't by any means a touchy-feely, seven-habits, win-friends, golden rule kind of book. It's a frank writing by a serious negotiator qualified by a long list of impressive accomplishments. Cohen uses real-life scenarios from a teenager negotiating with his parents to a street vendor in Mexico City ripping our author off quite well.
If you hate sleazy salespeople, buying a new car or haggling over prices, read this book. It will give you great insight on getting what you want.
