Bestselling author Deborah Tannen's insightful and unique book investigates interpersonal communication skills at this point in history. Tannen is a university professor and internationally recognized scholar, and her capable narration describes an angry culture quick to criticize, argue, bend the truth and resort to litigation, all resulting in the destruction of social patterns. In a forthright style, Tannen describes the way certain cultures resolve conflicts and negotiate for the higher good of all parties concerned. Her insightful and probing nature is obvious as she reminds the listener that it's not necessary to attack, cover up, polarize and oppose. Tannen provides a timely and crucial warning to societies to reverse these adversarial trends in order to create a more constructive environment for our children's future.
