Tannen, whose pioneering work in communication has helped us understand a lot of arguments, now turns her clarifying eye on the communication between mothers and daughters. As in much of her work, Tannen draws heavily on anecdotes, aiming less to present solutions and more to promote understanding as her insights illuminate old patterns and unveil the emotions behind them. Tannen's is an easy voice to listen to; despite being an academic, she sounds warm, wise, and down-to-earth. She also doesn't hurry, and she sounds compassionate--a motherly figure in her own right--while revealing how our relationships with our mothers and daughters affect our communications with the rest of the world.
