Getting to Yes
Comments and mentions from HN threads:
Ask HN: Books with a high signal to noise ratio?
mrestko: I'd second this. The core message of the book is well stated and though I read it a few years ago now, I still regularly use the communication techniques in every day life.
officemonkey: "Getting to Yes" is probably the shortest, most useful book I've ever read. If you have to negotiate anything, this book will help. I read it 22 years ago and it pays off regularly.

motohagiography: As a foundation, "Getting to Yes," is key, but as another commenter mentioned, it has been considered outdated because it assumes rational parties. This isn't a limit, as you need to play scales before you can play jazz, but there are no "scale recitals."
