Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In
William L. Ury
A systematic approach to a highly desired skill
Although negotiation takes place every day, it is not easy to do well, and standard strategies for negotiation often leave people dissatisfied, worn-out and/or alienated, according to Roger Fisher and William Ury in this book. The book describes a method of negotiation called principled negotiation, or negotiation on the merits. The method is designed to produce wise outcomes efficiently and ...
The Camp of the Saints
Social Contract Press
Raspail, like Orwell before him, had an uncannily accurate view of what would befall Europe in the decades to come. Of course, the seeds of that vision were already in existence in the political and philosophical ambiance created by the media and the entertainment industries which were promoting an almost self-abnegating loathing of all things Western, European or American. The politicians and ...

The Idea of Justice
Belknap Press of Harvard University Press
The Idea of Justice
Within the past month I was lucky enough to be able to meet with Amartya Sen thrice; at a conference, at a discussion and signing of his new book "The Idea of Justice," and at a dinner where I was honored to be able to hold a long discussion with him. Here I will draw on my understanding of him and his subject to give a brief review of his new book, "The Idea of Justice." One of the carried ...
Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential
Three Rivers Press
Great book about archetypes and how to manifest their powers in our lives
Sacred Contracts, Awakening Your Divine Potential is a book that helped me a lot both personally and in the development of my coaching techniques. As Caroline Myss, I am a mystic, a writer and I also work with archetypes. So in a fairly predictable way, I started this book with great excitement. What at first may appear to be rather complex is in fact a method of great insight. You can feel all ...
Professional Visual Studio 2010 (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)
Visual Studio Tome
I've been using Visual Studio for development for as long as .NET has been around, I've had no problem getting code written, compiled and debugged. In the back of my mind I knew that Visual Studio had a heap of features and would often see a presenter press a button here, or change a setting there, and would think that one day I'll spend some time digging deeper into Visual Studio. With ...
Contracts Examples & Explanations
Brian A. Blum
This book is written very well. The concepts are laid out in a cohesive manner. This book is especially helpful if your Contracts professor is very scant or unclear with his own explanations.

Problems in Contract Law: Cases and Materials
Charles L. Knapp
Nathan M. Crystal
In comparison to the other casebooks I've been forced to read this year as a 1L, this casebook is probably the best written. Instead of just placing emphasis on the cases and the rules to glean from them, it also highlights key principles and strategies to use as a lawyer in the future(termed lawyering by the authors). I must admit that taking Nathan Crystal's contract class obviously helps in ...

Business and Legal Forms for Photographers, 4th Edition (Business & Legal Forms for Photographers)
Boring, but Essential

Nothing is more important for a photographer who derives income from his pictures than having written agreements with his clients. "Business and Legal Forms for Photographers" opens with a broad discussion of photographer's contracts, including the "boilerplate" that appears in most of the contracts and ...

Federal Contracting Made Easy, 3rd Edition
Management Concepts, 2000
Contracting made easy...
Quick summary: If you intend on getting into Federal contracting, this is a very simple starter book. Lots of useful information and I've found quite helpful. Highly recommend this as a "must read" for all newbies in the business - you won't be disappointed. If you're experienced, don't bother getting this book - it's too basic and serves as an Intro 101 course summary.
The Marriage Contract
Public Domain Books, 2005
The Original Pre Nup
My first Honore de Balzac read, fascinating tale in flamboyant prose rings true in 2009 as it did three hundred years ago. Tale of a mediocre student whose family money allows him a life of indolence and excess. I loved the way he and his fiance offered studied indifference during the financial negotiations of the marriage. His mother-in-law's avarice and need to control and the groom's idiocy ...

A lot of this book is common sense, but sometimes you just have to remember it and put it to good use. I will use this book on a daily basis.
Cases and Materials on Contracts (University Casebook Series)
E. Allan Farnsworth
William F. Young Jr.
Solid modern contracts overview
This is a helpful hornbook, although I favor the more intricate (and therefore more accurate) single-volume treatise by Williston. Williston is harder to read but will help you deal with the terminology you'll find in most of the cases you will be studying in law school and reading law. Williston is the IBMPC to Farnsworth's Apple Mac; Moore's Manual versus Wright's Federal Practice; Shakespeare ...

The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer
St. Martin's Press, 2010
Excellant Story, a real page turner
This was a book I could hardly put down...he did terrible things, but there was a very good side to him also. He did have values and morales in that he would never kill a child or a woman....even though he was abusive to his wife. He was extremly smart and clever and carried on these killings for over 30 years without even being suspected. Such good and such bad. Learning the story of his ...
