“Full of practical wisdom for becoming more persuasive while keeping your integrity intact.”Adam Grant - Wharton Professor; Author of Give and Take
Every single day we are faced with the task of persuading others. It could be as simple as dealing successfully with a rude customer service rep. It might be closing the sale with the big but elusive client. It might be something as mundane as getting your spouse to take out the trash!
Do we resort
And every single day, we face resistance. We might even see the other person as an adversary and tend to resort to manipulation and coercion in an effort to win, to get our way. But this mentality will net only short term results… if even that! Leaving the other person feeling coerced or taken advantage of will only cause their resistance in the future and possibly even elicit their sabotage in the present.
There’s a better way. A much better way that creates both immediate and long-term sustainable results. Helping people make decisions that are not only in your best interest, but in alignment with their best interests as well, is the way to go.

Bob Burg is a deep thinker who has the gift of being able to take complex, incredibly important ideas, and, put them down on the bottom shelf so everyone can fully understand them. He is, in my opinion one of the leading authorities when it comes to how to create win/win relationships, which leads to creating influence. As you apply the ideas in this terrific book you will indeed see your influence expand to great heights. Adversaries into Allies is an incredibly important book. Read it, apply what you learn, and watch your results soar.

Wonderful. It’s written in a strong and yet kind tone which will show you how to use the same gentle but powerful strategies to win people over and get things done to your and their benefit.

Recently many of us have heard a lot of people talking about our society and the lack of civility we see. It seems that arguments are becoming more heated and more frequent in today’s world. Bob Burg does an excellent job with his new work, Adversaries Into Allies addressing how to deal with conflict and “turn lemons into lemonade.”
This is a book that would be useful for anyone who has to deal with other people. If the principles expressed in this book could be implemented by more people in our society today, we would have a much better world.
Get this book. It really can change your life and those around you. In fact, have some fun! Buy several copies of this book for those who could be your adversaries and watch them turn into allies!

In my opinion, every single trial lawyer, in fact, everyone practicing law who needs to interact with clients and opposing counsel, should get and read Adversaries into Allies. It’s that good.
