Getting More by Stuart Diamond

Getting More by Stuart Diamond

If you want to get to a negotiated agreement more often, Getting More by Stuart Diamond is the book for you.

Getting More is also the first book on negotiation I’ve ever read that focuses on the human angles of negotiation. For me, that makes it a winner.

Prioritizing Web Usability by Jakob Nielsen and Hoa Loranger

Prioritizing Web Usability by Jakob Nielsen and Hoa Loranger

Don't be fooled by the plain cover - this is a brilliant book for anybody designing web sites or writing words for them.

The whole thrust of the text is to put your vanity in a box and lock it away.  Think about the visitors you want to come to your web site, to read your words and buy whatever it is you're selling.
