and Top 5 Management Thinker 2015.
Break Through To Yes is an important book for our times. Dave Savage's powerful tools
will offer all readers renewed relationships and peaceful solutions to perplexing conflicts.
I strongly recommend reading this book and applying Savage's advice for collaborative
alternatives and "yes" agreements.
--Dr. Joan Goldsmith, co-author of Resolving Conflicts at Work, Ten Strategies for Everyone on the Job, 3rd Edition
If we are to evolve and survive as a species, we need to learn how to collaborate and
resolve conflicts with each other, both personally and globally. Doing so will require us
to build skills in conflict resolution, strengthen our capacity for empathy and compassion,
and recognize that, in the end, there is no "them" and "us," there is just us. Dave
Savage has written a powerful and insightful book that offers useful techniques in collaboration
and helps us see what we can do to make the world a better place. Read it,
practice it, integrate it into who you are and what you do, and you will begin to bring
that world into existence, from the inside out and the outside in.
--Kenneth Cloke, author of The Dance of Opposites and Conflict Revolution--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
