Personal Growth • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

A widely acclaimed inspirational writer, Hal Urban transcends his genre with a broad and reasoned argument that we’re destroying our culture with vulgar, mean, and inarticulate language. Slang and sloppy usage are too often justified as expedient without considering their costs to relationships and institutions. There are fascinating references to Ben Franklin, Freud, Zig Ziglar, the New and Old Testaments--all powerfully inspirational in Nelson Runger’s reading, which sounds as if it’s emanating from the heart of a loving and respected mentor. After several enjoyable hours with this program, listeners will find themselves watching their words (and attitudes) more closely. This heartfelt lesson will shift almost everyone toward a gentler way of connecting with others. T.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
