Reviews

"Most of us approach negotiation with a mix of fear and confusion. Now comes Ask for More to our rescue. With stunning clarity, Carter walks us through ten questions that will help us calm our emotions, clarify our goals, and steer our relationships with confidence and grace. Carter's conversational tone, gift for metaphor, and empathy for life's predicaments makes it a joy to read."
--Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen, authors of Difficult Conversations and Thanks for the Feedback

"Many people have a binary way of thinking about what they get in life: they get stuck between either a "polite yes" or a "rude no". They forget there is a third alternative: to negotiate. This is brilliantly illustrated in Ask for More by Alex Carter."
--Greg McKeown, author of the New York Times bestseller Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

"Reading Alexandra Carter feels like having a negotiation coach in your corner, encouraging you to think creatively and giving you the courage to ask for more."
--Linda Babcock, author of Women Don't Ask and Ask for It

"Guided by a simple ten-question framework and filled with powerful stories of real-life change, Ask For More empowers men and women to ask for what they want (and actually get it). This book is a must-read for any professional looking to create stronger, mutually-beneficial relationships at home or in the office."
--Kathryn Minshew, CEO of The Muse and bestselling author of The New Rules of Work
