Bill Richardson with Kevin Bleyer

Sharks are not evil, but they are single-minded and hungry. On land, they take the form of bosses, family and sociopathic neighbors. In the world of Bill Richardson, they have been globally powerful people. How to Sweet-Talk a Shark (Rodale, $26.99) is a candid and entertaining glimpse into an insider’s world of high-stakes negotiation—showing Richardson’s successes and failures in some of the world’s least friendly places. Co-presented with The Aspen Institute.
