Find out how to successfully resolve your most emotionally charged conflicts. In this landmark book, world-renowned Harvard negotiation expert Daniel Shapiro presents a groundbreaking, practical method to reconcile your most contentious relationships and untangle your toughest conflicts. 
Before you get into your next conflict, read Negotiating the Nonnegotiable. It is not just “another book on conflict resolution,” but a crucial step-by-step guide to resolve life’s most emotionally challenging conflicts—whether between spouses, a parent and child, a boss and an employee, or rival communities or nations. These conflicts can feel nonnegotiable because they threaten your identity and trigger what Shapiro calls the Tribes Effect, a divisive mind-set that pits you against the other side. Once you fall prey to this mind-set, even a trivial argument with a family member or colleague can mushroom into an emotional uproar. Shapiro offers a powerful way out, drawing on his pioneering research and global fieldwork in consulting for everyone from heads of state to business leaders, embattled marital couples to families in crisis. And he also shares his insights from negotiating with three of the world’s toughest negotiators—his three young sons. This is a must read to improve your professional and personal relationships.

This conclusion leads to an important question: Is it possible to put a price on emotions? . . . As a psychology professor, Dr. Shapiro is uniquely able to address a number of interesting aspects of negotiation the rest of us often forget. . . . More importantly, he discusses the conflicts between good and bad that take place in all of us . . . . The world has been enriched with another intelligent lecture on how we should interact with each other. Hopefully this time we will listen. Forbes
  • Appealing to rationality isn’t always the best way to mend a rift; instead, both parties in a negotiation have to be willing to get in touch with the conflict’s more emotional underpinnings. In his book, Negotiating the Nonnegotiable [Shapiro] shares the strategies he’s used to help people in all kinds of settings access the core emotions driving their conflicts and reach mutually beneficial resolutions. Business Insider
  • It is important, according to the author, to focus on the space between the conflicting sides in which a solution can be found. Shapiro begins by explaining the ‘Tribes Effect,’ the force that binds each of us to our communal identity. The same beliefs that bring us together, however, also separate us from other tribes. . . . [Shapiro] offers concrete suggestions on ways to break the pull of these emotional forces, build consensus, and finally bridge the gap between conflicting sides when the ultimate goal is reconciliation of the parties. Personal and global anecdotes bring warmth to the narration, and Shapiro’s keen insights give readers a blueprint for successful negotiation. Booklist
