Diamond: Getting More

For this installment of our illustrated business book series, we’re checking out Angie Chang’s favorite read.

Business Book: Getting More

I tell everyone about this book. It made me unafraid to ask for what I want.

To call Getting More: How You Can Negotiate to Succeed in Work and Life Angie Chang’s favorite business book is an understatement. “I tell everyone I meet about this book.” She’s not alone—Google used it to train all of its 30,000 employees around the world. The book argues a new way of negotiating that’s based less on power, and more on understanding the other person’s emotions and point of view. Not a big-time dealmaker? The basic principles apply not only to any career, but to life in general. Angie says,“It made me unafraid to ask for what I want.”
