Abstract:

Review: "Getting other people to do what we want is a useful skill for anyone. Whether you're seeking a job, negotiating a deal, or angling for that big promotion, you're engaged in strategic thought and action. In such moments, you imagine what might be going on in another person's head and how they'll react to what you do or say. At the same time, you also try to pick the best way to realize your goals, both with and without the other person's cooperation. Getting Your Way teaches us how to win that game by offering a fuller understanding of how strategy works in the real world."

"Considering everyday dilemmas in a broad range of familiar settings, from business and politics to love and war, James M. Jasper explains how to envision your goals, how to make the first move, how to deal with threats, and how to employ strategies with greater confidence." "Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Rosa Parks, Hugo Chavez, and David Koresh all come into play in this book, one that helps us recognize and prepare for the many dilemmas inherent in any strategic action."--Jacket
