So I started out looking for a book to listen to on my audible app, because I had not bought a book in a while and I had 2 credits because I’m on a subscription where you get a book a month for 15 dollars which can be good when most of these new books end up costing around 22 or so dollars.
I went through the list of mostly self helpy suggestions from gurus or whatever that I get recommended because of my past history on there and I just didn’t feel like listening to any of that jazz. It’s part of the reason why I stopped posting so much on here, because I started chirping off the same regurgitated stuff which didnt have much to do with experiential knowledge. But I found a book, this book, “Never Split The Difference” by Chris Voss.
Chris is currently a business consultant but the key part of his story was that he started his career as a hostage negotiator in the New York, and then moved to handling hostage negotiations globally as a leading FBI negotiator. So when he gives advice in the book he is backing it up with real world life and death situations which made this book rich beyond 90 percent of the books that I have read recently.
So go pick this baby up, or download it, and listen to it while you’re stopped in traffic. You’ll be glad you did, it will give you new insight into effective negotiation for every area of your life.
