Publisher Description

From a leading Yale expert and serial entrepreneur, a radical, principled, and field-tested approach that identifies what’s really at stake in any negotiation and ensures you get your half—so you can focus on growing the pie. 

Negotiations are incredibly stressful and can bring out the worst in people. Wouldn’t it be better if there were a principled way to negotiate? Wouldn’t it be even better if there were a way to treat people fairly and get treated fairly in a negotiation?

Split the Pie offers a new approach that does both—a field-tested method that reframes how negotiations play out. Barry Nalebuff, a professor at Yale School of Management, helps identify what’s really at stake in a negotiation: the “pie.” The negotiation pie is the additional value created through an agreement to work together. Seeing the relevant pie will change how you think about fairness and power in negotiation. You’ll learn how to get half the value you create, no matter your size. 

Filled with examples and in-depth case studies, Split the Pie is a practical and theory-based approach to negotiation. You’ll see how it helped reframe a high-stakes negotiation when Coca-Cola purchased Honest Tea, a company Barry cofounded with his former student Seth Goldman. The pie framework also works for everyday negotiations. You’ll learn how to deploy logic to determine truly equitable solutions and employ empathy to expand the pie and sell your solution. Split the Pie allows both sides to focus their energy on making the biggest possible pie—to have your pie and eat it too.

    " Wow… Excellent Read! Finally, a book about negotiations you can put into use right away… so far, I have closed two deals with very favorable terms using the techniques in Split the Pie—and I was not even done with the book. Had I not read the book, I would have fallen back on how I used to negotiate, which was to lower my number and cut into the profit. Here’s the highlight of one of the deals… I ran into a channel conflict, as I had generated a lead at one of largest stadiums in the US, but it was already an account of the manufacturer I represent — yet I was able to get the manufacturer to consider splitting the pie with me, because I had uncovered a new contact that they had not penetrated. And, because I used a logical argument and not an arbitrary number, they agreed to Split all the NEW revenue/profit 50% / 50%. "
