In this provocative book, he reveals how the proven techniques and psychological insights used in hostage negotiation can be applied successfully to any personal or business relationship. Step by step, he outlines the seven key factors that anyone can use to remove the blocks that stand in the way of resolving tough problems and shows how business leaders, in particular, can develop and access the skills they need to create trust and a positive mind-set in their companies.


"A new look at what every leader needs to know about controlling emotions, relating, dialoging, negotiating, and breaking free of being hostage to the past or to one's current environment. This book is a practical masterpiece."
