    One thought on “The Good Girl's Guide to Negotiating”

    1. I don't really know what made me download this, but I did. And I read it. It was a quick and easy read, and maybe it will help me with future salary negotiations. I am pretty surprised I read it, as anything with a title that implies that I am a "girl" rather than a woman usually turns me off. The tone is sort oft condescending, but assumptive, maybe? That I let people walk all over me. And there are lots of stupid jokes and puns. But I don't regret reading it. I knew nothing about negotiating b [...]

    2. I've read a lot of books that talk about money, and this one ranked highly among them. I did find it interested that so much of their advise was attributed to males, but they had a lot of women contributors too. Too few, in my opinion, but that's why this book is needed. i think every girl should read it right after college, or in their mid-twenties, whichever comes first. :)

    3. I read this book for my MBA Negotiation class and learned that women have to ask for what they want. Guys have learned how to do it all their lives. All women should read this book so, they can teach their kids what do. Both men and women can benefit from this read.

    4. Semi-useful A good read for tips and to start the thinking process. Not neccessarily something I would follow word for word.

    5. Nothing particularly new in this book. It's a solid start on negotiation skills for a variety of situations but I've read similar in business school and other reference.
