Never Split the Difference
July 5, 2016
Segment A: Negotiator, Chris Voss
Former FBI lead international kidnapping negotiator Chris Voss and bestselling author Tahl Raz have teamed up to create “Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It,” a field-tested guide on the art of negotiation. Voss draws on his 20 years of experience in the FBI, where he was involved with over 150 kidnapping cases, to illustrate his techniques. Conventional negotiation is turned on its head, presenting tips that give readers the confidence in competitive edge they need in any situation. Voss will be diving into some of these techniques with Cathy, illustrating how to apply them to even the stickiest family situation, and share some gripping tales from his time in the FBI.

Though the original series only ran from 1966 to 1969, the true legacy of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek lives on. This year will mark the 50th anniversary of the sci-fi franchise -- a milestone that was absolutely undreamed of when the Starship Enterprise first took flight. We'll look back across half a century of Star Trek and consider why the beloved film and television series continues to "live long and prosper."
