Why is it that a couple in the throes of divorce struggle just as hard to “create the deal” as the American businessman typically does in putting together a sustainable deal with his foreign counterpart?

In this show, we take a step back from the world of international business deal-making and diplomacy and take a hard look at some of the tips and techniques used in those areas that can help in everyday life.

Are there cross-overs that really work? Do we plan out our lives or, more accurately, do we negotiate them? What can we learn from international diplomacy and high stakes deal making that will make us more successful in the many negotiations we all engage in every day?

“Asia in Review” host David Day engages in an important and fascinating conversation with special guest Prof. Jeswald Salacuse from the Fletcher School of International Law and Diplomacy of Tufts University about Salacuse’s new book “Negotiating Life – Secrets for Everyday Diplomacy and Deal Making“. Dr. Salacuse is the former Dean of the Fletcher School, a prolific writer on the topic of negotiations, and a member of the faculty and the executive committee of the Harvard Program on Negotiation. He is also a visiting professor of law at Harvard Law School.
