For purposes of full disclosure, I received this book as a Goodreads First Read.

A great collection of first-hand accounts of high-level negotiations from a master negotiator himself, Bill Richardson. This non-fictional book is not only an interesting book about a man's life in government, but is also a how-to on negotiating. Mr. Richardson has taken what can be a dry topic and made it entertaining with his sense of humor and wit. His experiences with world leaders like former President Clinton, President Obama, Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, and Chavez make this book even more interesting. While Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In focused on negotiating in business and your private life, How to Sweet-Talk a Shark: Strategies and Stories from a Master Negotiator pulls extreme examples of negotiating with world dictators, terrorists, torturers, and every day politicians. A quick-read it is both educational and entertaining. A must-read for anyone who may have to negotiate or who is interested in politics.

I really enjoyed this book! I wasn't expecting it to be as entertaining or readable but I found myself enthralled and loved every minute spent reading it. To say the least, I highly recommend it. ( )
