His book offers a long-time business consultant's take on real-world negotiation situations ranging from buying a house to dealing with the in-laws. "The Practical Negotiator" looks at the key qualities to a good negotiator, outlines the key differences between competitive and collaborative negotiation, and discusses a wide variety of topic dealing with family, neighbors, business, work, marriage and more.
