Jagged Rocks of WisdomaNegotiation Mastering the Art of the Deal Press Reviews

Once again, Morten Lund combines a sharp insight with a wicked sense of humor to provide invaluable advice on how to negotiate. Except for students who take a class in negotiations (and perhaps even some of those), business and law school graduates are woefully unprepared to face a real-life encounter in a conference room with parties having very different interests than their own. Learning by observing is, at best, extremely inefficient, and learning by doing is far too dangerous. In Jagged Rocks of Wisdom Negotiation, Lund has given the young attorney with a set of guideposts (Lunds Rules) that will allow the professional to avoid the pitfalls inherent in every negotiation. I wish Lund's book had been around when I was younger, although someone who has been around as long as I have is never too old to learn. By: Gregory F. Jenner, Partner, Stoel Rives LLP -- Gregory Jenner -- Senior law practitioner What Morten Lund has to say about negotiation should be read by every new attorney, manager, and official. Lund conveys what a real leader needs to know, right nowaand what that leader needs to do, right now. He breaks down each major topic into Rules detailed, concise, usable rules for those with a minimum of time and a maximum of get-it-right. Lund's books should be required reading for anyone who negotiates professionally. By Jeffrey R. Atkin, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP -- Jeffrey Atkin -- Senior Law Practitioner
