“A masterpiece—clear, insightful, and practical.”—William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes

Harvard negotiation expert Daniel Shapiro introduces a groundbreaking method for resolving the most difficult of conflicts—from the political, to the professional, to the personal

As the shockwaves of the 2016 political cycle continue to reverberate, cooperation and reconciliation feel farther away now than ever—but there is a path forward.

Editorial Reviews

“Quite simply, the best book I have ever read on negotiating in situations of extreme conflict.”—Matthew Bishop, The Economist Group“Brilliant insights to the baffling conundrum of our age, intractable disputes of all kinds.”—Daniel Goleman, author Emotional Intelligence“Shapiro exposes the myth that humans are primarily rational in their decision making. . . . More importantly, he discusses the conflicts between good and bad that take place in all of us. . . . The world has been enriched with another intelligent lecture on how we should interact with each other. Hopefully this time we will listen.” —Forbes “Daniel Shapiro gives you the tools to transform yourself.”—Rick Kleffel (KQED), Rainbow Light blog“I have recommended Shapiro’s book more than any other book I have read in quite some time.”—PsychCentral   “A blueprint for successful negotiation.”—Booklist“Appealing to rationality isn’t always the best way to mend a rift; instead, both parties in a negotiation have to be willing to get in touch with the conflict’s more emotional underpinnings.
