Excellent review. In response to requested additional resources: Kolb, D. and Williams, J. (2003). The shadow negotiation: How women can master the hidden agendas that determine bargaining success. New York: Simon & Shuster. Babcock, L and Laschever, S (2009). Ask for it: How women can use the power of negotiation to get what they really want. Note: basic negotiation concepts. Babcock, L & Laschever, S. (2007) Women don’t ask: The high cost of avoiding negotiation – and positive strategies for change. Note: not much on negotiation skills. NYTimes, December 15, 2012: How to attack the gender wage gap? Speak Up.

Best Review out There!
That was the best review I've read on Lean In! Great work! I've sent your review around to my own readers/fans (on Facebook, Twitter, etc.) of my book Fight Less, Love More: 5-Minute Conversations to Change Your Relationship without Blowing Up or Giving In. I have a chapter on negotiation in my book too. Question for you: What single book would you recommend as a negotiation trainer for someone looking to gain skills in salary and business negotiations?Thank you!
