Great Reads Book Club – S. Lucia Kanter St. Amour, interviewed by Clare Fowler

In this episode of the Mediate.com book club, Lucia Kanter St. Amour speaks about her new best seller “For the Forces of Good: The Superpower of Everyday Negotiation”


About the book:

“The joy Marie Kondo sparked for home organizing Lucia Kanter St. Amour has kindled for everyday negotiation.

Have you ever arm-wrestled for chocolates, gamed with the tit-for-tat robot, or booked a session with a negotiation stylist? No?

Ever tried to get a toddler to eat their broccoli, been in a conversation where someone repeats themselves over and over, or tried to reason with a person who insists their opinion is indisputable fact?

Ever faced a bully? Yes? This book is for you.

With plucky prose and arresting content, it offers handy Everyday Super Tips . . . and Girl Scout cookies. Accompanied by a runway fashion show of original art, you might call it the little black dress (or white pantsuit) of negotiation literature. It’s as visually splashy as it is enriching.”
