Politics & Prose Bookstore and The Aspen Institute Presents BILL RICHARDSON and KEVIN BLEYER
Thank you for your interest in this event. The guest list is full. For more information please call 202-364-1919.  

HOW TO SWEET-TALK A SHARK is a rare, candid, and entertaining glimpse into an insider's world of high-stakes negotiation  showing Richardson's successes and failures in some of the world's least friendly places. Meanwhile, readers get frank lessons in the art of negotiation: how to prepare, how to size up your opponent, how to understand the nature of power in a standoff, how to give up only what is necessary while getting what you want, and many other strategies Richardson has mastered through at-the-table experience  and from working with other master negotiators like Presidents Obama and Clinton, and Nelson Mandela. These are takeawayas that anyone can use to negotiate with the power brokers, dealmakers, and, yes, the hungry sharks in their own lives.

Bill Richardson is a two-term governor of New Mexico, former US ambassador to the UN, and former secretary of the Department of Energy. He spent 15 years in Congress and has successfully won the release of hostages, American servicemen, and prisoners in North Korea, Iraq, Cuba, and Sudan.

Kevin Bleyer was an Emmy Awardwinning writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and author of ME THE PEOPLE: One Man's Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America.
