Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absoolutely great! This is my third copy of "Getting to Yes" because I loan it out so often and sometimes it does not find it's way back. If you are a human resources practitioner, this book is a must have. It lays out in clear straight forward language how to resolve issues in a way that leaves the parties involved feeling they have brokered the fix. Getting to Yes is about fighting fair and negotiating in a principled way. If you are a parent, spouse, brother, sister etc.it will also work for you. A lot of strife in relationships could be avoided by using the principles and approaches articulated in this book. I have read it from cover to cover on a number of occasions and continue to reference it as issues arise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good and usefull book, but why is it that long? The audio book comes on 6 CDs. All this info could easily fit into just 2 CDs or maybe even less. That feel that the book is... may I use the word "diluted"? The example conversations are very good, but why are there just a few of them?!!! Many topics are covered as a high level overview. In my opinion, in such book authors should pay more attentions to details on how to lead a conversation and less - to the general concepts. I definitely recommend this book to those for whom negotiations are a part of their job. It might be useful for others, but do not be surprised if you find that 75% is nothing else, but just common sense and you already know it. Do not get me wrong. 25% is not bad. I do not feel sorry for buying and listening to this book and I would do it again. It does not deserve A mark, but deserves B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Student Let me first salute the authors, Roger Fisher & William Ury. Excellent, job well done. If I could, I would make this book a core course in all high schools or post secondary schools. This masterpiece has something to offer for everybody, from head of a state to a student in a junior high school. Adil Arman

Read from the Book

 Chapter 4: Invent Options for Mutual GainThe case of Israel and Egypt negotiating over who should keep how much of the Sinai Peninsula illustrates both a major problem in negotiation and a key opportunity.the pie that leaves both parties satisfied. Often you are negotiating along a single dimension, such as the amount of territory, the price of a car, the length of a lease on an apartment, or the size of a commission on a sale. At other times you face what appears to be an either/or choice that is either markedly favorable to you or to the other side. In a divorce settlement, who gets the house? Who gets custody of the children? You may see the choice as one between winning and losing- and neither side will agree to lose. Even if you do win and get the car for $12,000, the lease for five years, or the house and kids, you have a sinking feeling that they will not let you forget it. Whatever the situation, your choices seem limited.option like a demilitarized Sinai can often make the difference between deadlock and agreement. One lawyer we know attributes his success directly to his ability to invent solutions advantageous to both his client and the other side. He expands the pie before dividing it. Skill at inventing options is one of the most useful assets a negotiator can have.Yet all too often negotiators end up like the proverbial children who quarreled over an orange. After they finally agreed to divide the orange in half, the first child took one half, ate the fruit, an
