Negotiation Advice: A Synopsis

by Michael A. Wheeler


Distills the negotiation advice of more than a dozen general books on negotiation. Compares and contrasts specific prescriptions and organizes the books into five loose categories: win-win or mutual gains negotiation, negotiation analysis, relational negotiation, negotiation in context, and the school of hard knocks. An appendix provides a more extensive bibliography.
