Almost every interaction involves negotiation, yet we often miss the cues that would allow us to make the most of these exchanges. In Getting (More of) What You Want, Margaret Neale and Thomas Lys draw on the latest advances in psychology and economics to provide new strategies for anyone shopping for a car, lobbying for a raise, or simply haggling over who takes out the trash. Getting (More of) What You Want shows how inexperienced negotiators regularly leave significant value on the table—and reveals how you can claim it.

About the Narrator

Derek Shetterly is a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale with a BA in radio/television and a double-minor in theatre and Spanish. He spent twenty-three years in radio as an on-air talent and production director, and it was the creative process in writing, performance, and production and his love for acting that evolved into a passion for voice-over work. He now works as a freelance, full-time voice talent out of his home studio in Oregon. When he’s not in the voice booth, you might find him traveling, fly fishing, mountain biking, or cross-country skiing (depending on the weather).
