Summary of Never Split the Difference

Summary of Never Split the Difference by Instaread

Summary of Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss and Tahl Raz    Preview : Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss and Tahl Raz is a guide to using hostage negotiation techniques in business and personal negotiations. Modern negotiation strategies taught in business school usually center on classic texts that describe negotiation without factoring in emotions or irrational behavior. In reality, all negotiations involve emotional factors and illogical reactions. And in hostage scenarios, “splitting the difference” by accepting the release of half the hostages in exchange of partial fulfillment of demands is never a desired outcome. Hostage takers who feel heard are more likely to trust negotiators to be honest about what they want. Active listening involves mirroring the other person's speech, speaking in a way that sounds assertive but calming, and not saying anything at all for several seconds between utterances. This slows the conversation down and conveys the impression that the negotiator wishes to understand…   PLEASE NOTE: This is  key takeaways and analysis  of the book and NOT the original book.   Inside this Instaread Summary of Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss and Tahl Raz ·                      Overview of the Book ·                      Important People ·                      Key Takeaways ·                      Analysis of Key Takeaways   About the Author With Instaread, you can get the key takeaways, summary and analysis of a book in 15 minutes.

"A warm, generous and hilarious guide through the writer's world and its treacherous swamps." -- Los Angeles Times Advice on writing and on life from an acclaimed bestselling author: "Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our  family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.'"
