It's not completely bad, it's worth your time to pick up a few things. Obviously the title is hyperbole, get over the hype, listen and enjoy a few key ideas you may not have heard. It's has a nice structure and leads you by the hand for some negotiations, you will have to listen a few times to get them in practice.
Wonderfully useful negotiating and life strategies. I really like the way this book was set up with the initial problem, first person's view and each counter part's argument. I like the real life examples as well.
It's OK if you can focus on the 101 "winning tactics" recited one after the other and remain with something afterwards...
I was totally bored and learned absolutely nothing.
I only listened to 2 of the three CDs in this collection - I didn't find any gems or real learning in this audio book, and found the examples silly and contrived. I just couldn't force myself to listen to the final CD.
It is an OK book . They just tell you what to do in what specific situation. not bad afterall.....But after reading the book of Nirenberg on negotiation, it is not that impressive....
Not the worst, but certainly not the best. Good forum by having two different people to keep it from being monotonous, however some of the advice is fairly rudimentary.
