Publisher's Summary

From the best selling author of You Just Don't Understand comes another groundbreaking examination of the way we communicate - in public, in the media, in politics, in our courtrooms and classrooms - letting us see in a new way forces that are powerfully shaping our lives. We live in a pervasive warlike atmosphere that makes us approach anything we need to accomplish as a fight between two opposing sides - urging us to regard the world in an adversarial frame of mind. Tannen explores the roots of this argument culture, the role played by gender, and how other cultures suggest alternative ways to negotiate disagreement and mediate conflicts so that we, as a society, can find constructive and creative ways of resolving disputes and differences.

    "Poor recording"

    The recording is very poor. I had to turn up my volume very high and even then it was difficult to hear.

    "Understanding the poisonous argument culture"

    Though written in the 1990s Deborah Tannen's explanations and analysis is spot on and demonstrates why the poisonous political climate has not changed. This is not only or primarily about the political climate though but also personal relationships. A must, listen and then get a copy of the book.

    "חשוב מאד"

    אהבתי את הגישה שלה. כדאי שכולם יאמצו. אותה, פה שם ובכל מקום. לוותר על תרבות הויכוח ולעבור להקשבה.
