    "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."

    What did you love best about The Modern Scholar?

    if there was only one audiobook that I could recommend for every husband and wife and every parent it would be this one. Understanding the foundations of language and communication from childhood to the adult is a powerful tool that each and every one of us need in order for all of us to be better partners and parents.

    Deborah Tannen's course on how men and women develop their communicative styles is truly an eye-opener and continually engaging throughout.

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Story
    Where does Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Genghis Khan, although a brutal conqueror, created the foundations of a civil society that established religious freedom, diversity of culture and a system of laws to serve all people regardless of status or wealth.

    This is a history of the modern world that we should all be aware of, although, few if any are. You will discover that Genghis Khan was the greatest leader the world is ever known.

    Fantastic book.
