TO WIN is practical. There are many
successful books about negotiating, but this is only book about HOW to
negotiate. Instead of the theory, trivia, clichés,
and war stories of other works, Negotiate
to WIN has the real down-to-earth, functional,
pragmatic information that readers crave. It provides
concrete, understandable, smart, immediately-usable instruction
in how to negotiate, along with specific guidance in a
variety of special situations including international
and intercultural negotiations. It doesn’t bury
the reader with 1,000 or 100 things to do, but just 21
Rules. Even the 21 Rules of negotiating are rank-ordered by importance;
only 7 are critical.
NEGOTIATE TO WIN is comprehensive. Every other
book on the market overlooks one or more key topics, such
as psychological origins, comparisons with other interpersonal
skills, historical examples, ethics, international concerns,
day-to-day applications, and most importantly, a comprehensive
list of the actual techniques. Far more than a simple
how-to book, it skillfully
blends the nuts and bolts of negotiating with historical,
scientific, ethical, cross-cultural, and practical material

TO WIN is the only book written by a professional
negotiator for the sole purpose of helping you negotiate
better. The vast majority of books on negotiating

advice for the reader. Negotiate to

NEGOTIATE TO WIN is written by Jim Thomas. Negotiating has been the heart of Jim’s 30-year law practice.
His experience includes mergers and acquisitions, domestic
and international business transactions, arms control, the
environment, trade and diplomacy, real estate, labor relations,
and a host of other fields. His clients range from
Fortune 500 companies and federal, state, and local government
agencies to small and mid-sized businesses, non-profit groups,
and professional and trade associations. Jim’s
current negotiating projects include some of today’s most
newsworthy domestic and international issues.
Jim served the United States in the successful Intermediate
Nuclear Forces (INF) negotiations with the former Soviet
Union and the GATT (now WTO) trade negotiations. In
1977, Jim wrote and presented a pre-negotiation briefing
for a client that dramatically improved attendees’ negotiating
skills. He expanded this material into a workshop
and, in 1982, offered it to the general public.
Jim’s original briefing has become
one of the leading negotiation programs in the world and
the recipient of numerous awards for excellence. Tens of thousands of Jim’s students and listeners have
asked to buy a book presenting his uniquely practical
approach, and now they have it in NEGOTIATE to WIN.
