About this deal

Never Split the Difference takes you inside his world of high-stakes negotiations, revealing the nine key principles that helped Voss and his colleagues succeed when it mattered the most - when people's lives were at stake. He does not have much to say about disinformation campaigns, vested interests, or free-market fundamentalism.

He explains the problems we have created, both for ourselves and for our home (are they even separate? David Attenborough's A Life On Our Planet leaves viewers in tears as Netflix doc reveals devastation of natural world".

I certainly will recommend this book as an authoritative, and easily digestible narrative to raise awareness for everyone.

The author also acknowledges the powerful (mostly economic) influences that allow scepticism on climate change, and lack of action to combat it, to persist.With a new afterword, Why You Are Here: A speech on the opening of the COP26 climate summitAs a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world – but it was an illusion. Personally, I've seen it here in my area: storks were gone for over 15 years, we barely had any amphibians left, the water quality dropped significantly (which, by the way, meant we needed to apply expensive methods to clean it enough to make it drinkable so saving the environment might even be cheaper), foxes and badgers weren't seen, the forests grew sick, a lack of birds of prey meant the place being overrun by vermin or people needing to use terrible poisons to get a hold of the situation. Some of the scientific solutions he proposes need further development, but a lot of the technology already exists. I wasn't planning to read it cover to cover, I actually had a pile of books I've was going to switch between, but I was completely hooked. An award-winning natural historian shares his knowledge he acquired during his last 93 years of life through this book.
