Herring, a lawyer and academic at Exeter College of Oxford in the UK, shows general readers 10 rules of successful arguing and the situations in life and work where arguments are most likely to occur. He explains how to be prepared, know when to argue or walk away, understand what to say and how to say it, listen, respond, watch out for crafty tricks, develop the skills for arguing in public, argue in writing, resolve deadlock, and maintain relationships--and situations like arguing with loved ones, children, or experts; complaining about goods or services; ending a dispute when in the wrong; dealing with constant arguing; avoiding being a doormat; and being a good winner.
