NEW YORK, April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Forget The Art of the Deal—when it comes to negotiating, Peter D. Johnston is the real deal. Widely sought by major corporations and governments around the globe, the negotiation expert and bestselling author is launching the first novel that delves into the art and science of deal-making. WEAPONS OF PEACE: The Nurse, the Negotiator and Hitler's Atom Bomb (Goldrook Publishing, April 2019) is a negotiation thriller inspired by two true stories from World War II. For corporate executives, the book offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy an exhilarating plot while learning and absorbing real-life influence strategies and tactics for a cutting-edge business approach.
"Riveting historical fiction… superbly researched and executed…
from one of the world's leading negotiation experts."
–Jules B. Bloch, professional mediator
Johnston, the world's leading expert in asymmetric negotiation, and author of the international bestselling nonfiction guide to negotiation and diplomacy, Negotiating with Giants, chooses fiction this time to broaden the audience for his negotiation philosophy and lessons through a novel that both entertains and informs. Negotiation is one of the top skills that executives identify as being vital to their success. In WEAPONS OF PEACE, readers see how the toughest negotiations can be handled as Johnston draws on recent third-party research that contends the race for atomic mastery ran into the final days of WWII.
Drawing on insights from the book, Johnston plans to hold an executive training retreat at the 800-year-old Leeds Castle in South East England, where part one of the novel unfolds. The negotiator crafted WEAPONS OF PEACE at night, during seven years, while advising his high-profile clients by day on their most challenging negotiations and conflicts.
"Absolutely addictive… the author's ingenuity and command of his material
are on full display on every page. Woven seamlessly into this breathtaking page-turner
is a master class in negotiation and influence."
–Dan Pontefract, leadership strategist
