Publisher's Summary

Expanding on the principles, insights and wisdom that made Getting to Yes a worldwide best seller, Roger Fisher and Scott Brown offer a straightforward approach to creating relationships that can deal with difficulties as they arise. Getting Together takes you step-by-step through initiating, negotiating, and sustaining enduring relationships - in business, in government, between friends and in the family.

The Steps:

  • Rationality - Balance emotion with reason.
  • Understanding - Learn how others see things.
  • Communication - Always consult before deciding...and listen.
  • Reliability - Be wholly trustworthy, but not wholly trusting.
  • Persuasion, not coercion - Negotiate side by side.
  • Acceptance - Deal seriously, with those with whom you differ

    very dense but very helpful

    This book definitely intends you to remember the lessons. Tons of examples.

    From the end of the book:
    Two heads are better than one... but... one head is better than none.

    This is getting at the point that it's better to have one cooperative person in an interaction than none. This book teaches you how to be that one.

    Enjoy!

    Worthwhile

    Interesting and worthwhile, but somewhat a product of it's time, with examples using Gorbachev and Reagan for illustration
