Product Description

In their groundbreaking book Women Don't Ask, Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever uncovered a startling fact: even women who negotiate brilliantly on behalf of others often falter when it comes to asking for themselves. Now they've developed the action plan that women all over the country requested: a guide to negotiation that starts before you get to the bargaining table.

Ask for It explains why it's essential to ask (men do it all the time) and teaches you how to ask effectively, in ways that feel comfortable to you as a woman. Whether you currently avoid negotiating like the plague or consider yourself hard-charging and fearless, Babcock and Laschever's compelling stories of real women will help you recognize how much more you deserve - whether it's a raise, that overdue promotion, an exciting new assignment, or even extra help around the house.

Their four-phase program, backed by years of research, will show you how to identify what you're really worth, maximize your bargaining power, develop the best strategy for your situation, and manage the reactions and emotions that may arise - on both sides. Guided step-by-step, you'll learn how to draw on the special strengths you bring to the negotiating table to reach agreements that benefit everyone involved.

This collaborative, problem-solving approach will propel you to new places both professionally and personally, and open doors you thought were closed. Because if you never hear no, you're not asking enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just excellent 15 Sep 2010
By Emma P
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I normally hate self-help books but this one hit the nail on the head. Practical and clear without being condescending, it's already helped me negotiate for dozens of things I never thought I'd have the guts to ask for and achieve excellent results. If you're a woman who struggles with negotiating I can't recommend it highly enough. I've also found the process of learning to negotiate fun and that's something I never thought I'd say. Thanks to the authors for writing such a useful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved the book 9 April 2010
By A.C.
Format:Paperback
Finally I felt good to know that I'm not the only one who can't ask :). Now also my boyfriend understands me better.
After reading the book I felt more confident to ask my boss to pay my salaries on time.
It gives you practical advise how to improve your negotiation skills. Now I know much better how to formulate my demands and propositions when in negotiation process. Lots of practical excercises included.
I will be getting this book for 4 of my friends as a gift.

I got this book for a female friend who expressed a need for help in becoming more assertive. She is using the 'power of negotiation' already and feeling much more positive about herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 11 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
Unputdownable -so glad I got this book. Shows how women from all backgrounds & stages of their lives lose out because girls aren't expected to 'go' for the things they want and need.

Demonstrates with real life examples the benefits of 'asking & negotiating' skills. Gives tips on how to recognise opportunities & even on how to create them. Shows how and when to walk away too. Has a practical exercise section at the back. Already I'm implementing many of its principles & seeing the results including increased self esteem.

I've recommended this book to two girlfriends
