The Book of Real-World Negotiations

Joshua Weiss


Many of us enter negotiations with scepticism and without understanding how to truly negotiate well. Because we lack knowledge and confidence, we may abandon the negotiating process prematurely or agree to deals that leave value on the table.  

The Book of Real-World Negotiations offers the chance to change your approach to negotiation by learning key strategies and techniques from real-world examples. It aims to show what is possible through preparation, persistence, creativity, and taking a strategic approach to your negotiations. 

As negotiation is now being taught in many Business Schools, virtually all law schools, and in the field of conflict resolution, the book also shares insights and lessons for instructors and students of negotiation.
