This is great - more than a book on negotiation - it should be a bible for all agency account handlers. Inspiring and practical.--Tara Page, Client Services Director, Saatchi and Saatchi Health

Moving from supplier to partner should be the goal of any forward-thinking agency - the thoughtful and practical advice here can really help to make that goal a reality.--Phil Bartlett, General Manager, Torre Lazur McCann McCann World Group

Chris Merrington knows his sector inside out and has great strategies, tools and approaches that actually solve the problems. And I know because I've tried them.--Martin Finn, Managing Director, EdComs
