Mayer's book teaches how to make compelling and convincing arguments to support your position no matter who . I found this book after I read an article in Men's Health magazine that had tips from Robert Mayer on How To Negotiate With An Angry Woman.

Mayer's book teaches how to make compelling and convincing arguments to support your position no matter who your audience is in a simple, no-nonsense way. As a lawyer, I deal with hostile and agressive lawyers attmepting to argue with me in an "in-your-face" way. Before this book, such tactics would distress m. The article based on Mayer's strategies talked about how to defuse anger and how critical it is to "build a discussion" because there can't be trust without a dialogue.

This is a good collection of advices.

I agreed with many of the reviewers that Robert Mayer does not make a good writer. This compilation of advices seems to be lifted from his presentations. The illustrations are short and to the point, just like what a presenter will do when presenting to a group of top payers who do not have more than an hour to get back the value for the big bucks that they paid for the seminar.

Initially I was also put off by the first few chapters, but once I convinced myself how this compilation of advice might have originated, the reading became easy and I began to appreciate and benefit from the wisdom contained in this book.

The difficult part is how to put these advice into practice. Something which Robert Mayer trusted the readers will exercise their thinking skill here.

This book is just a listing of famous people and how the author knows them.

It would have been fine as an autobiography - but not as a book under the title given. The chapter titles don't make any sense at all and the stories have no connection to them anyway. I don't think it sensible to take advice on argument from someone who can't even maintain a basic logical premise in a paragraph.

This book is like an encyclopaedia of debate and human relations. Brilliantly written, I refer back to it regularly. Highly recommend

Don't waste your money, don't waste your time, dont't waste your brain: this book is not worth buying, is not worth having, is not worth reading.

I bought this book because I wanted to win arguments and still have people respect how I handled the situation. I wanted to learn how to write better emails in tough situations and to learn how to handle an argumentative staff.

But this book was no help, as it is the worst book I have come across in five years. This is not a book about how to win arguments, it is a collection of stories of all the great arguments the author has been in, which appears to be often.

The author takes the position that TV shows such as "Simpsons" and "South Park" shape our culture. There are endless pop culture references that don't make any sense, with frequent and useless dramatic and references such as "The great wise Spock once said." There are nonsense titles like this on almost every page: "Take a lesson from a Wise Old King, Because There is Much to Be Learned from a Mango Tree."

There is very little information about actually constructing and phrasing an argument. The author loves to tell stories, and you really have no idea where he's going with them. There is one actual "real life" example near the end of the book where the author tells an incredulous story about how he got a refund from a hotel clerk by driving him mad with harassing questions.

I bought this book because I wanted to win arguments and still have people respect how I handled the situation. Not to think I'm a total jackass.
This is an excellent book with a useful framework for putting your opponent at ease, connecting with them emotionally, then layering in some bulletproof logic to win your argument. I like how Mayer sets up thorny communication challenges for the reader to squirm over, then applies the chapter's principles to show how to structure your argument to maneuver yourself into a good negotiating position.

As a communications professional, I was able to start using the principles in this book immediately. My only criticism is the book could have spent more time describing ways to brainstorm and evalate different themes for your argument. There is one excellent chapter on themes that will not work (eg. pleading, ultimatums, guilt, etc) but a similar chapter on the top 10 themes that are effectivce would have pushed this into five-star territory. Overall, though, an excellent book and recommended reading.
