What a great resource - packed with useful information, legalese made readable, and it shares valuable insights on the way digital accessibility is (mis)understood by those outside our community of advocates and consumers. If you care about equal access to communications technology, get the book, read it, and share it widely. it will help you talk about a complex issue directly and positively.

This book is a great tool for teaching the art of Structured Negotiation. It offers real-world examples and tips on moving through obstacles and resolving disputes in a collaborative fashion.
Haben Girma Oct 10, 2016 Report Abuse
This fantastic guide to structured negotiations provides valuable insights for anyone interested in becoming a better advocate. Readers learn effective strategies through easy-to-follow explanations with fascinating anecdotes from the author's work as a disability rights attorney. I really enjoyed reading this book and appreciate all the lessons within.
John Waldo Sep 30, 2016 Report Abuse
This book is for every litigator willing to acknowledge that most of our procedural wrangles, discovery disputes and expert battles don't actually get us any closer to solving our clients' concerns. Structured Negotiation is particularly suitable for a disability-rights practice like mine, because it puts our clients front and center, encouraging solutions that we can validate as workable rather than solutions that may appear appropriate by people who don't personally experience the problem. But any lawyer and any client willing to focus on the fix rather than the fight can and should read this book. Ms. Feingold has done a service to the legal profession that will give us all better nights' sleep, fewer ulcers and longer and more rewarding careers. John Waldo (Houston, Texas)
