    Each day involves countless interactions with others - not only among family and friends but also with neighbors, co-workers, even telephone solicitors. An attitude of love may not be your top priority in some of these encounters. But what if the ancient maxim "love your neighbor as yourself" applied to everyone, including those you meet in the most ordinary circumstances?

    Deborah Fallows has spent a lot of her life learning languages and traveling around the world. But nothing prepared her for the surprises of learning Mandarin - China's most common language - or the intensity of living in Shanghai and Beijing. Over time, she realized that her struggles and triumphs in studying learning the language of her adopted home provided small clues to deciphering behavior and habits of its people, and its culture's conundrums.

    A new way of understanding language provides a powerful new foundation and a new set of tools for designing and re-designing your life, at home and at work, and everywhere in between. This is especially relevant for everyone seeking meaningful change in their lives, as well as those for whom building and maintaining mutually-beneficial relationships is important. And it's particularly useful for leaders, managers, salespeople and anyone else who "gets paid to have effective conversations"!

    In a series of fascinating conversations with eighteen American poets, and in dozens of poems, The Language of Life celebrates language in its "most exalted, wrenching, delighted, and concentrated form," and its unique power to recreate the human experience: falling in love, facing death, leaving home, losing faith, finding God.

    Surprisingly few people take any time to think about how they are learning languages. They usually just trust their teacher or friends' advice. This is inefficient at best and often liable to failure at worst. Language learning and learning in general have been over-complicated by a mass of theories, methods, and techniques. This makes life harder than it needs to be. This book attempts to cut through the noise and give a clear description of how languages are actually learned.

    This week On Being, Krista Tippett speaks with a living legend in the field of psycholinguistics - Jean Berko Gleason. For over five decades, she's studied how language emerges and what it tells us about how we think and who we are. Jean Berko Gleason was one of the first to confirm that young children know grammatical forms no one has taught them, and say things they've never heard anyone say before. She reveals what we keep learning about the human gift, as she puts it, to be conscious of ourselves and to comment on that. Jean Berko Gleason sees this as a frontier every bit as important and thrilling as exploring outer space or the deep sea.
