    Story

    Written at a 6th grade reading level and narrated in a condensending tone, I could not finish this book. I barely finished George Washington. . .
    I thought while listening to the authors long and self-centered introduction it was going to be a wrong choice of books for me. There is nothing original, I learned nothing about George Washington I have not read in other books.

    "My goal in this series, in addition to illuminating the patterns of women's and men's uses of language, is to enhance understanding of how language works in everyday life. I am told by students who have taken my courses that this understanding helps them in their everyday lives, as every aspect of our lives involves talking to people of the other sex - in our personal relationships, our families, at work, and in trying to get just about anything done."

    R. says: "Kind of revelatory, at least for me"

    Story

    This book is full of Aha and Oh Yeah moments. Tannen's real life examples and studies verify what we have known but either could not explain or make others understand about the differences in male/female communication. It is concise and abundant in communication differences. Rather than offering ways we need to change to be understood, it explains both are perfectly understandable just the way they are. This is the guide book to learn each other's language. Listen once to enjoy being astounded and the second time to take notes.
    The chapters that explain Dads trying to understand little girls and Moms wondering what their boys actions and lack of words mean. Tannen nails it for all of us!

    A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery. An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel. A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream. A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.

    Story

    Until I realized at the end of the book this was a true story with real people it seemed contrived. It would have been better served without the dramatic Old South music between chapters. If you like true life stories that play to your emotions . . .
