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. From the Hardcover edition.

Um Hilfe zu bitten fällt uns oft schwer, weil wir Angst haben, schwach und bedürftig zu scheinen. Eine völlig falsche Sichtweise, meint Amanda Palmer. Die Musikerin ist eine wahre Expertin darin, sich helfen zu lassen, bat sie doch bei unzähligen Gelegenheiten um die Unterstützung ihrer Fans. Dabei hat sie erfahren, dass der ausgetauschte Gefallen stets für beide Seiten ein Gewinn ist. Wer um Hilfe bittet, zeigt sich zwar verletzlich, erhält aber auch die Chance, Vertrauen zu beweisen und Beziehungen aufzubauen. Amanda Palmer hat ein großes Buch über Menschlichkeit geschrieben; über Ängste und Schwächen und über die Kraft der Güte und des Vertrauens.

This story is set in England, in the year 1770. Beneath the silk and lace of London society lies a secret, elite organization of spies. Protecting the Crown from its enemies is hazardous, but for Marcus Ashford, protecting his heart from an unyielding passion is the far greater peril...As an agent to the Crown, Marcus Ashford, the Earl of Westfield, has fought numerous sword fights, been shot twice, and dodged more than any man's fair share of cannon fire. And yet, nothing excites him more than the primitive hunger his former fiance, Elizabeth, arouses. Years ago, she'd jilted him for the boyishly charming Lord Hawthorne. But now the elegant widow is his to defend, and he will do so while tending to her other, more carnal needs, showing her the depth of a real man's desire...Dangerous secrets led to the murder of Lady Hawthorne's husband, secrets she now holds in a diary many would kill to obtain. But to entrust herself to the protection of the most seductive man she's ever known? Outrageous. Unthinkable. Irresistible. For it was Marcus's strong passions and burning desire that frightened her into abandoning him years ago - and her answering craving has never waned. Now he means to be at her service, in every sense. And perhaps the only sensible course isn't to resist temptation, but to surrender to it completely... From Booklist Even though it had been four years since his fiancee, Elizabeth, scandalously jilted him at the altar, Marcus Ashford, the Earl of Westfield, had never forgotten her. Now the widow Lady Hawthorne, Elizabeth is free of any matrimonial bonds, and Marcus is determined to pursue her. When Marcus discovers that Elizabeth is in danger because of the coded diary left behind by her late husband, Marcus insists on being the one to protect Elizabeth since it will provide him with the perfect opportunity to seduce her into admitting he is the only man for her. Day expertly crafts a potent sense of sexual chemistry between her irresistibly arrogant, sinfully sexy hero and the one woman clever enough to be his equal. With its surfeit of sensually detailed love scenes and vividly descriptive writing, Ask for It is perfect for readers who prefer their historical romances filled with plenty of sizzling passion and dangerous drama.
