To Be or Not to Be Intimidated? That Is the Question.is the totally rewritten, retitled version of Winning through Intimidation, the landmark New York Times #1 Best Seller that has dramatically impacted the lives of millions of people worldwide.

No human being is intimidation-proof. No matter how successful a person may be, there are times when he/she is subtly intimidated by others, often without being consciously aware of it -- that is, until the results become visible: a sale or deal that blows up at the last minute, a fee or commission that isn’t paid as promised, an anticipated promotion that doesn’t come through, or even a love relationship that comes unglued.

In other words, intimidation is a common thread that runs through virtually every aspect of life, from terrorism to corporate scandals, from reality TV shows to bullying in public and private schools, from church corruption to financial survival.

The most troublesome intimidator in someone’s life at any given time might be an unreasonable spouse or significant other, overbearing boss, annoying co-worker, deal-killing attorney, argumentative repair or service person, rude store clerk, or even a loved one.

The original title of this extraordinary book often misled people into thinking that it was a book about how to get ahead by intimidating others. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is, in fact, a book about how the reader can learn to defend him/herself against intimidating people.

To Be or Not to Be Intimidated? explains -- in candid terms that may sometimes make you wince -- what intimidation is, why you become intimidated, and how you can avoid the mental lapses that can cause even the most confident and successful people to become intimidated.

In today’s world of chaos and uncertainty, understanding the phenomenon of intimidation is critical to one’s survival and success in both his/her business and personal life. If you heed the realities exposed in To Be or Not to Be Intimidated?, there will be fewer occasions where you find yourself scratching your head and trying to figure out why a situation you thought you had under control ended up falling apart at the seams.

To sleep, perchance to dream-ay, there's the rub: For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause-there's the respect. That makes calamity of so long life. Than fly to others that we know not of? Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, And thus the native hue of resolution. Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pitch and moment. With this regard their currents turn awry.

**I'll preface this by saying I am in Real Estate with a sales license for agency

Because all the negative reviews, comment on the books' concentration on Ringer's commercial real estate journey....

Negative comments with this face-value dismissal will OVERLOOK the UNREVEALED mindsets one should really have approaching business

If I could, I would have read this book 10 years ago, well before I had my license .....

Today, Every business book will sell you on rosy green pastures in the industry as long as you give value and sing kumbaya ..... Leaving you ill-prepared for more experienced competitors, colleagues, even customers out for your Money .....

If you are really starting from the ground up in business, like ringer you WILL UNDOUBTEDLY face these challenges ......

Two lessons in the book conveyed much more vividly -
- No one will be looking out for your interests
- Power posture is EVERYTHING in negotiation

Ringer DOES NOT use a know-all, 'guru' voice, simply stating - "this is how it's done, just listen because i'm successful".....

.......but rather he depicts all his lessons in detailed stories from his experiences, showing pitfalls and successful adjustments.

To be fair, If I read this 10 years ago I probably would have made the same negative comments, seeing no immediate relevance before becoming an agent.... but that would be like trashing a ferrari because I didn't obtain my license yet

I'll agree that maybe the book needs to be prefaced, that it's about his real estate journey .... so if you're going to read this book, an open-mind needs to be kept, enough to apply those challenges ..... if not you're probably not ready for it ..... or you're searching to learn from more 'guru'-type materials

This is a re-issue of Winning Through Intimidation, a book I loved and lost. Its been updated and talks about how their is no substitute for knowing what your doing. Intimidators know what their doing, and Intimidate those who don't know what they are doing

I thought this book was very interesting and offered some really good tips for anyone in sales, namely the emphasis on positioning yourself as THE professional.

However, I found the author's writing to be too focused on the greedy pursuit of money. To me, there is more to sales (and commercial real estate brokerage) than simply accumulating "chips", as the author calls them. Furthermore, I do not feel that there are only 3 types of people, and that all want to keep you from getting your money.

All of that said, I think this book offers valuable insight with little fluff. Every salesperson/agent should read this book, if for no other reason than to read the cool stories the author tells about his business.

If reading this book informs you of these two things, then you will have spent your ten bucks and few hours of reading time well. First, Ringer lets you know that everybody is out to get you. While much of my career has been marked by people going out of their way to be kind to me, and many mutually beneficial relationships, the point is still well-taken. In business, the people you do business with are looking out for their own business interests. It's nice when everyone wins, but often that only happens when contracts are clear, agreements are written, and you energetically stand up for what you have contractually agreed upon.

So - for small business owners like me (I'm a landscaper), please, create a basic contract for every job you do. Don't think that your verbal agreement is enough. It isn't. Outline everything, make any additions or changes in writing, and do not deviate from that practice unless you're able to afford getting screwed. This sounds paranoid and mean-spirited, but it's of benefit to your clients as well, since they'll appreciate clarity and knowing what they get for what price.

Next, and I learned this recently to my detriment - the lawyer-to-lawyer respect rule is real. If you will be in any situation where the other side has a lawyer, get your own lawyer, even if you have to bribe your friend's parent's brother in law to stand for you. Otherwise the lawyer will run right over you just for the fun of winning. Lawyers seem to respect one another, however, so if you get two of them in a room, they can generally hammer out some agreement that won't make everybody want to die. So - if you know someone has legal counsel, and you care how the decision goes - get your own legal counsel to talk things through with their person. Otherwise, you will lose.

Now, for the book itself. Ringer rambles through a number of long stories about real estate deals that as a landscaper I found monumentally boring. I bought this book on the advice of Dan Kennedy, who I adore, and while I liked Ringer's no-nonsense tone, the book was more about Ringer than it was about us. Not a good thing. Though I did find that his attitudes and points about success in business were helpful, I found books like The Four Hour Workweek much more so given the time it took to read each. We only have so many hours in the day, and Ringer's books needed a good editor to make this book a third the size. Had he done that, I would have recommended it with more enthusiasm.

This book should be read by anyone who is interested in be respected during negotiations, or in any other human interaction.

Describing the problems faced during his real estate career, Robert presents solution to problems he has found during negotiations. The reading is easy, even when the subject, real estate, is not interesting to me. Stop being intimidated is learned through this negotiations and the solutions he's found.

I haven't read the first book, so I can't compare, but it made no difference to me. The book can be read without notice of the previous one.

I liked it and learned a lot.

Great Storyteller! Very funny. My only disappointment with this book was that there weren't even more stories for Mr. Ringer to tell. If you are in any type of sales, read this book. If you just "don't get it", you are probably just a sales clerk / order taker and aren't in a real sales job.
