We have all read 'how to' books which tell us what we already know, with few surprises.
The benefit of such books, a category in which I would include 'The Hagglers Handbook', is that while we might say, "I knew that", when a potential haggling opportunity arises, we don't co-ordinate the things which we "know" into a coherent stragety / strategies. We end up making a hash of it!
When those against whom we pit ourselves are professionally trained in such skills / haggling / anti haggling, we fall at the first hurdle in a heap of confused inability to focus.
What this book does is to spell out, in a chronological order, the tactics and skills which we 'already knew' but didn't mentally co-ordinate ourselves to use. How to head off anti haggling tactics. How to win!
Haggling does not come naturally to the general British public. However, taking the simple guidance form this book will, as a starter for ordinary folk, turn you into a competent haggler - if you use the techniques which it imparts.
Simple techniques. Simple to read. Simple to master. Simple to remember.
I leant this book to a colleague many years ago and never got it back. It's been on my claw back list ever since.
Read it, memorise the advice and use it - you won't look back!
