Our foremost language and communication expert gives a comprehensive lecture on a range of language and relationship issues. Staying within the framework of social science, she explains what she knows about styles of communication and what they reveal about individuals and their relationships. She unpacks the dynamics between who has power and who doesn't, who is emotionally connected and who isn't, and who has value and who doesn't. A warm and articulate speaker, Dr. Tannen never leaves her academic moorings but effortlessly reaches beyond this realm with lessons that will be fascinating to almost everyone. For the casually curious as well as the serious student, this is a complete college course and a gratifying listening experience. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
