Abstract:

"Cats rank among the world's top negotiators. They get humans to do what they want, when they want. So if you could learn to persuade a cat to do what you wanted, then any human - colleague, friend, boss, partner, or even your most cantankerous relative - would bow to your magic. This book teaches you all the tricks you need to get along with even the most stubborn adversary. Among other things, you'll learn how to get your body language just right; perfect your timing - the art of the pounce - and make your opponent feel calm, happy, purring and in control, as you steer him or her away from a fight, and towards a mutually-beneficial, scratch-free resolution. Surprisingly simple and incredibly effective, this guide to winning arguments will lead you to healthier, happier relationships, a more successful career and, even, the ability to herd cats, should you so wish."--Publisher description.
