Former U.S. Senator George Mitchell will present his new book ""The Negotiator - A Memoir"
In this book the Negotiator, George Mitchell illustrates that the process of negotiation – much like life – is not the result of a straight and predictable line of thoughts or events. What’s key in both political and personal challenges is a willingness to confront risk and face the odds. He successfully forged a peace treaty in Northern Ireland after chairing three separate committees, but in the Middle East ended his two tours of duty with the regional conflicts unresolved, providing a hard lesson about the reality that negotiations can also fail.
With a keen sense of self-awareness and refreshing honesty, Mitchell provides a wealth of stories with valuable lessons from pivotal events in the last half-century, from domestic disputes to international treaties, at a time when the art of negotiation is sorely needed in resolving political and diplomatic challenges today.
