I have read 4-5 books on this topic -- this is by far the best. The others are too lengthy, more for academia or career-services professionals. But this one carries the nuts & bolts, along with the clear step-by-step methods & best advice that the other books gloss over or ignore.

With this book, I have coached several colleagues & myself -- one of them got a salary offer $10,000 ABOVE what the company was initially offering. Another negotiated a sign-on bonus that was originally non-existent. When I first read it (in '99), I gave my closest friends copies of it for Christmas! How's that for an endorsement?

I'm a career coach and my clients have utilized the strategies in this book with great success. Last week a client suggested that the title should be, "How To Make $2000 A Minute" because by taking two minutes to ask a recruiter if her starting salary could be increased, she received $4000 more in base pay. Other clients have negotiated even more. This book is definitely worth the small investment to purchase it as there is a good chance that the reader can recover the cost of the book many times over.

I have owned this book for quite some time and it is always at the top of my most recommended list.

I once used the techniques in this book to convince an employer to change their base offer from 45K to 90K + Bonus. I took the job!

GREAT BOOK!

This book was down to earth and realistic and it provided simple strategies that were easy to follow. People expect you to negotiate when you are given a job offer and it reflects poorly on your own skills if you do not attempt to at all. Following the instructions in this book allowed me to get $4000 more added on to my salary than I was initially offered. You need to read this book early on in the job search process because there are strategies that you need to implement from the beginning - like figuring out how to avoid revealing what your salary requirements are or what you are currently making. This is critical to maintaining your ability to negotiate when it comes down to it.

Anyway, I would highly recommend this book for those who have not had much experience negotiating salaries. It gives simple, easy to follow tips that actually work. You will be pleased by the results!

The book was "good". It didn't necessarily teach me anything new, but I value it as a resource on not compromising. Thank you for a well written guide.

I write resumes and coach job seekers. Roughly 15 years ago, when I first read Jack Chapman's book, "Negotiating Your Salary: How to Make $1000 a Minute," I recommended it to a client for "beta testing". Overnight, before an interview, he studied it (it's an easy read). After accepting the position, he used the book's techniques and increased his starting salary by nearly 20%.

I now recommend "Negotiating Your Salary" to everyone -- prospect or client -- who calls. Recently, a new client read it before a job interview. Following the author's advice, she increased her starting salary by $10,000 during initial negotiations. Then, while filling out employment papers with HR, she applied the techniques again and upped the salary by an additional $5000!

Read "Negotiating Your Salary" ... study it ... then use these effective negotiating techniques to your advantage. They work, even in this economy.
