    Getting to Yes

    This has helped me so many times. Getting to YES. If you can try and read and understand about BATNA. That makes it easy for me.

    What a great thread thanks Duncan.

    Good to Great is really good.

    I guess I need to come up with something else then.

    A tough choice, but I'll go with The magic of thinking big by David Schwartz.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I agree that Good to Great by Jim Collins is very good book, but his book Built to Last is better for me.

    Many many books I've read are really great, but none could teach everything by itself...

    bottom line...

    read read read read read read...you may not remember everything you read but your horizons are sure to widen...

    I am enjoying 'Business Stripped Bare: Adventures of a Global Entrepreneur' by Richard Branson
    But I am cheating because I am listening to the audio book!
