Like it or not, we are all negotiators and we are always negotiating something – whether we do it consciously or unconsciously. ‘Negotiation Boot Camp’ is a quick all-in-one book that manages to put together a number of negotiation tips together with advice from the author’s own experience.
According to the author of this book, Ed Brodow, nothing is nonnegotiable and if you hear someone tell you that something is nonnegotiable, that is when the negotiation process begins. The pace at which different tips on negotiation is given in this book is very quick and at times I felt like I needed a lot more information in order to be able to understand how I would handle a particular situation.
Nevertheless, ‘Negotiation Boot Camp’ serves its purpose as a boot camp book that only skims through the wide range of scenarios one is likely to come across when doing business. As the author states, there is no doubt that those of us who have mastered the art of negotiation tend to live easier lives because we manage to get what we want out of any situation.
Recommendation: Anyone interested in a quick reading on numerous negotiation tactics.
