Note: Every effort has been made to provide accurate and current Internet information in this book.
However, the Internet and information posted on it are constantly changing, so it is inevitable that
some of the Internet addresses listed in this textbook will change.
This book is dedicated to negotiators who want to improve their ability to negotiate—whether
in multimillion-dollar business deals or personal interactions. It is possible for most people to
dramatically improve their ability to negotiate. You can improve your monetary returns and feel
better about yourself and the people with whom you deal. New to this edition is an integration of
theory, scientific research, and practical examples. Moreover, the practical examples—selected
from hundreds of real-world negotiations involving people from several organizations and many
different cultures—illustrate effective, as well as ineffective, negotiation skills.
Here is what you can expect when you read this book:
• Illustrative case studies. I include multiple examples and actual cases of negotiating in
managerial and executive contexts. Each chapter opens with a case study or actual business
situation (from business, government, world affairs, community, and personal life). New to
this edition, are more than 122 updated examples from the business world.
• Real-life negotiations. Furthermore, many of the points in the chapters are supplemented
with illustrations and examples drawn from actual negotiations, both contemporary and
historical. I do not use these examples to prove a theory; rather, I use them to illustrate how
many of the concepts in the book are borne out in real-world situations. New to this edition
are updated opening chapter vignettes derived from current business, political, and global
events that illustrate real world negotiations.
• Skills-based approach. In this edition I provide practical take-away points for the manager
and the executive. A good example is Chapter 4 on integrative negotiation. A series of handson principles that have been proven to increase the value of negotiated deals …
