Palo Alto, CA, USA – May 2, 2022 – Jotham Stein, author of Negotiate Like a CEO: How to Get Ahead with Lessons Learned from Top Entrepreneurs and Executives, was featured on the Mark Bishop Radio Show talking about his book, business, negotiating and, most importantly, not getting taken to the cleaners.

Mark Bishop, with four decades of media experience, has a distinctive voice and is well known for conducting engaging, informative and entertaining interviews. Bishop’s wide range of knowledge gives him the ability to intellectually engage with guests from many different disciplines and backgrounds.

In the opening segment of the interview, Jotham Stein relayed a primary reason for writing Negotiate Like a CEO, “Because I’ve seen all the good things that can happen, and all the bad things that can happen, I wrote this book to help everybody that’s out there. We spend so much time in our employment, and in our careers, but don’t know so much about it sometimes.”

A graduate of Stanford Law School and Princeton University, Stein has more than two decades of experience in executive law, representing individuals from all walks of life, including entrepreneurs, C-Suite executives, and less senior employees of all size companies. In his career he has negotiated robust employment agreements, separation agreements, M & A agreements, change in control agreements, stock option agreements, restricted stock agreements, management carve out agreements, non-compete agreements, and much more.

“It’s the concept to protect yourself, to read everything or get a good adviser to read everything, to negotiate with leverage, just like a CEO would negotiate with leverage. I wrote this book to help the people out there who have no idea how to help themselves in their employment relationships,” says Stein. “Too many just don’t know how or are too afraid to ask.” – Jotham Stein

What does it mean to negotiate like a CEO? How important are employment agreements? How can you learn to protect yourself and your family if the worst does happen? These are all questions that Jotham S. Stein addresses in his book Negotiate Like a CEO, with the goal of equipping individuals with the tools they need to safeguard themselves in business and employment.

“Jotham has helped me throughout my career, from setting up strong employment agreements to securing stock compensation to protecting the management team during the sale of my company. Jotham is a guy you want in your corner. His book should be required reading for anyone who thinks ‘this could never happen to me’.” – Andy Cohen, founder and former CEO,

As a hi-tech Silicon Valley attorney Stein is brutally honest in assessing a situation and advising his clients. In Negotiate Like a CEO you’ll learn to be aware, to recognize potential employment pitfalls, and how to protect yourself. You’ll also learn that you may have more leverage than you might think, either now or as you advance in your career. – Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Hall of Fame Reviewer

“As a CEO and multi-time Silicon Valley executive, I was very fortunate to learn from Jotham early in my career the great importance of the protective employment offer letter. Employment law is very complex and with this book you can learn from the best.” – Bonnie Crater, co-founder and CEO, Full Circle Insights; former SVP; former SVP Genesys; former VP Oracle; former VP Netscape
