What do you like about this subject?

Negotiation is such an integral part of any dealing, I find it fascinating to see how using time-proven strategies helps everyone in a deal, and not only one side. Because applied negotiation always seeks a win-win result, I believe the study is worth anyone's time.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

People negotiate naturally, every day, but most never really think about it.
