IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a book summary of Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss and is not the original book.
If you want a set of negotiating skills that will work in your favor every single time, then listen to this advice from Chris Voss. Voss worked in the FBI for more than two decades and 15 of those years he spent as a hostage negotiator. Dealing with international drug traffickers, powerful terrorists, and professional kidnappers have taught him a thing or two about successful negotiating. What Voss discovered is that negotiating is anything but logical and rational and is, in fact, shrouded in emotions, undiscovered needs, and burning desires.

The concepts & principles aren’t explained well.
I bought this after reading a few pages of the original book at Amazonbook store. The original books was a better read. This audiobook isn’t effective at explaining principles the user can gather on the first read & start their application. It could be written a lot better regarding work choice & the structure of the principles.
