Negotiation Boot Camp: How to Resolve Conflict, Satisfy Customers, and Make Better Deals

by Ed Brodow (Doubleday)

Ed Brodow gives readers the opportunity to hone their skills so they can negotiate successfully at work and at home.

From Library Journal: "Negotiation expert Brodow has put his popular corporate Negotiation Boot Camp seminar into book form, offering a 12-week course (a chapter a week) wherein 'recruits' learn different skills until they can intrepidly tackle the trickiest negotiations. While his building blocks have relevance in the workplace with clients, staff, and management, Brodow's advice, garnered from the streets of his hometown of Brooklyn, NY, and his Fortune 500 clients, proves handy for everyday situations as well. Readers, for instance, will learn about buying a car or negotiating medical fees."

From Reg Nordman, Canadian Sales Consultant: "Wow! I have read many books on negotiation over the years. This is the one that quickly, succinctly and immediately does the job. Buy it, read it regularly and do not lend it!"

Readers learn:

  • The ten traits of successful negotiators
  • How to prepare for a negotiation
  • Strategies for adversarial and win-win negotiating
  • Making concessions wisely
  • Twenty proven negotiating tactics
  • Purchasing strategies
  • The secrets of sales negotiation
  • Workplace negotiations between managers and employees
  • Negotiating overseas
  • Personal negotiations: salaries, department stores, medical bills, etc.
"Negotiation Boot Camp is witty, incisive, instructive, pithy and chock full of real-world examples; it shows us how to succeed -- not just in negotiations, but in life itself. This is a must-read."
– Harvey Pitt
Chairman, Securities & Exchange Commission 2001-2003

Getting A Success Change - ebook by Ed BrodowGetting A Success Change: How to Be Happy in a World Gone Mad

by Ed Brodow

Ed Brodow redefines traditional notions of success, prescribing how readers can find it on their own, uniquely individual terms.

He argues that millions of Americans who have acquired the symbols of success do not feel successful. Instead of pursuing our true desires, we have been conditioned to seek the superficial, ego-based ideals of "fame and fortune." This narrow definition of success has trapped millions of unsuspecting people in lifestyles that do not satisfy their real needs. As a result, the most affluent society in human history is faced with an epidemic of depression, drug abuse, alcoholism, violence, and suicide. Brodow helps readers refocus their energies to lead the kind of life that satisfies their true needs. Getting A Success Change offers concrete, prescriptive advice for negotiating for the job you want and the life you desire.

"A guide to rethinking the meaning of success that may well resonate in these financially difficult times. Brodow's diagnosis of an all-too-common personal dissatisfaction is convincing, and his prescriptions are well grounded in both basic psychology and common sense."
