4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent negotiation preparation, 5 Jan. 2012
I have never attended one of Chris' courses but have heard always great things about them from colleagues. I have just finished reading "Why Do..?" and had a particular forthcoming annual fee negotiation in mind while reading it.
Chris writes in a very simple, easy-going style and when negotiations cloud over with complexity and all the associated pressure you want someone like Chris to remind you to keep to the basic principles and give you tips to avoid the possible pitfalls.
Definitely worth re-reading each time you enter the negotiation process.

It offered real insight and a good breadth of case studies.You can't argue with Steve Harrison's track record as a creative director. I would recommend it to anyone engaging with the creative process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Body beautiful, 28 Jun. 2005
Right down to the Julian Opie image on the front, I thought this book delivered totally.
There are some amazing facts here, interwoven with modern relevance and an engaging writing style.It's pop-science but that's fine by me.
Well done
