Getting to Yes with Yourself: And Other Worthy Opponents:Harper Thorsons. ePub edition William Ury
William Ury, co-author of the classic best seller on negotiation Getting to Yes, has taught tens of thousands of people from all walks of life - managers, salespeople, students, parents, lawyers, and diplomats - how to become better negotiators. Over the years, Ury has discovered that the greatest obstacle to successful agreements and satisfying relationships is not the other side, as difficult as they can be. The biggest obstacle is actually ourselves - our natural tendency to react in ways that do not serve our true interests. But this obstacle can also become our biggest opportunity, Ury argues. If we learn to understand and influence ourselves first, we lay the groundwork for understanding and influencing others. In this indispensable prequel to Getting to Yes, Ury draws deeply on his personal and professional experience negotiating conflicts around the world to present a practical method to help you get to yes with yourself first, dramatically improving your ability to get to yes with others. Extraordinarily useful and elegantly simple, Getting to Yes with Yourself is an essential guide to achieving the inner satisfaction that will, in turn, make your life better, your relationships healthier, your family happier, your work more productive, and the world around you more peaceful. 1.

Savannah Jones feels completely isolated at her publishing company, where getting a meaningful assignment means flashing your cleavage and exploiting your femininity. When she challenges these standards, however, she finds herself saddled with an impossible client: world champion MMA fighter Torran Maloney. The Irishman´s hotheaded brashness drives her up the wall, but Savannah can´t deny the instant attraction between them. What he doesn´t realize is that her upbringing and innate stubbornness make her more than a worthy opponent, even for someone who´s been fighting his entire life. Torran has spent his entire life working his way up from the bottom. To him, being a champion is just a title. Fighting for sport is what he lives for- and what helps him escape his past. When a new publicist literally forces her way into his life, Torran is forced to admit that maybe she can do for him what he couldn´t do for himself; and maybe, just maybe, Savannah Jones is the one thing he´s been missing.
Richard I was crowned King in 1189 and set off almost immediately for the Third Crusade. This was a bloody campaign to regain the Holy Land, marked by warfare among the Christians and extraordinary campaigns against the Saracens. Men and women found themselves facing new sorts of challenges and facing an uncertain future. John, the youngest son, was left behind - and with Richard gone, he was free to conspire with the French king to steal his brother´s throne. Overshadowing the battlefields that stretched to Jerusalem and beyond were the personalities of two great adversaries: Richard and Saladin. They quickly took the measure of each other in both war and diplomacy. The result was mutual admiration: a profound acknowledgement of a worthy opponent. In this gripping narrative of passion, intrigue, battle and deceit, Penman reveals a true and complex Richard - a man remarkable for his power and intelligence, his keen grasp of warfare and his concern for the safety of his men, who followed him against all odds.
