“This book is exactly what I needed 15 years ago, and with it, I would possibly now be a very successful full-time mediator instead of a full-time forensic accountant who flirts with mediation. With this book, anyone who is determined to become a successful mediator has all the guidance and all the tools needed...use it well, and things most certainly will happen. I heartily recommend it.” –  The Expert & Dispute Resolver, Review of previous edition
