Think Like A Lawyer Series

Larry Kahn is a retired attorney with twenty years’ experience advising corporate clients on decisions often involving stakes in the hundreds of millions of dollars. He was raised in a working class home and had no special privileges, but graduated from Yale Law School, married a wonderful woman from a similar background, raised two college-educated sons with her, and retired at age forty-five. He has learned some tricks to simplify life along the way and is writing the Think Like A Lawyer series to pass that knowledge on to others.

“Negotiating A New Car Purchase” is the first ebook in the series. Future titles include “A Guide To Making Good Decisions,” “Planning For The Long Term,” and “Protecting Your Student From Landlords & Roommates.”

Negotiating A New Car Purchase

Buying a new car can be both exciting and frightening. There’s a lot of money at stake, and car salesmen are notoriously slick. This short ebook will guide you through the car buying process, arming you with enough information and negotiating tools to bring the most battle-hardened salesman to his knees. Most of the work can be accomplished from home. It’s so easy to get the absolute rock bottom price for your dream car that you’ll almost wish you could do it more often!

Think Like A Lawyer: Negotiating A New Car Purchase provides a simple procedure based on the author’s negotiating experience with car dealers and in the business world. It focuses on new car purchases, although some of the advice is transferable to used car negotiations, as well. Kahn’s style is concise, providing clear action steps without puffing up the writing with long anecdotes or redundancy to make it seem more impressive. This guide is unique because it shows you how to pit dealer against dealer to get the best price possible. If you follow the author’s methodology, you will avoid the tricks and traps employed by car salesman and ultimately save hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dollars on your first car purchase!

  • When I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2010, my neurologist told me there was nothing I could do to slow down an inevitable slide into disability. So I simply (apathetically?) went about the business of researching my third novel for over a year until I crossed paths with others who had discovered a curiously overlooked goldmine of scientific research suggesting vigorous exercise could help slow the progression of PD and improve quality of life.

     

    After experiencing the impact of exercise myself, my wife, Ellie, and I began brainstorming with other believers about how to effectively spread the gospel of exercise and hope.  We formed PD Gladiators in 2013, a nonprofit charged with developing a plan to ally metro Atlanta fitness instructors and clinicians to convince people with PD to take a proactive approach to managing their disease. PD Gladiators entered agreements with the Atlanta YMCA, Livramento Delgado Boxing Foundation, Yellow River Center and other independent fitness instructors to build a network of PD-specific exercise classes based on PD Gladiators’ promise to promote the exercise research and the PD Gladiators Fitness Network to local clinicians to create the referral “pipeline” necessary to make the adapted fitness programs sustainable. I believe recruiting the support of influential clinicians in our community from the start was the critical insight that has led to the phenomenal growth of the Network.

     

    By 2018, the Network consisted of over 60 weekly classes, and metro Atlanta “gladiators” logged almost 25,000 class visits for the year! On August 1, 2018, the Parkinson’s Foundation and PD Gladiators determined they could better serve the needs of the Parkinson’s community through an organizational unification. Ellie and I served on the Advisory Board for the Parkinson’s Foundation Georgia until retiring in October 2019. PD Gladiators Executive Director Annie Long continues to manage and grow the Network as an employee of the Parkinson’s Foundation.

     

    Ellie and I still practice the proactive, hopeful approach that we  preach. With Ellie’s loving support, I exercise daily, eat a nutritious diet supplemented as recommended by Dr. Laurie Mischley (a Parkinson’s researcher and naturopathic doctor practicing in Seattle), and have adopted good sleep habits. While excited to begin the retirement we had deferred to nurture PD Gladiators, I intend to devote some of my energy–without stress and deadlines–to brainstorm ideas for other areas of Parkinson’s care in need of intervention  for consideration by government and charitable organizations with the mission and resources to undertake these projects.

     

    I believe that problem-solving is a team sport, and I encourage you to join in the discussion. Let’s make Parkinson’s Ideas, Man an incubator for high impact solutions to the issues that effect us most.
