Book Review: Give and Take

Chester Karrass's Give and Take is a great book that tells you how to negotiate a business deal, contract, or purchase of a large product.

The book has pretty much any tactic that will ever be used on you and how to counter them.You can bet your opponent has read this book so be prepared!

You'll learn how to react when the other person changes the terms of the deal after an agreement has been reached, how to identify opportunities you otherwise would have missed, when to divulge information and when to keep silent, and how to get concessions from the other side, among many other tips.

Mandatory for business people negotiating a deal, or even if you're just buying a car at the local dealership.
