The "Getting to Yes" Guide for ESL Students and Professionals
Principled Negotiation for Non-Native Speakers of English

Getting to Yes, developed at the Harvard Negotiation Project, has been an international bestseller on win-win “principled” negotiations since 1981. Its four-step method has helped millions of people negotiate successfully with friends, relatives, business partners, customer service agents, opposing counsel, government officials, and other adversaries. Native speakers of English can easily and enjoyably learn the method by simply reading the book. But for non-native speakers of English, the vocabulary, idioms, phrasing, examples, and references can be difficult to understand. These readers may not be able to use Getting to Yes to negotiate in English on an equal footing with more fluent English speakers.
