Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Valerie Fridland?
Yes but not if Mrs Fridland narrates it. One of the other reviewers pointed out how annoying her voice is and I have to agree. It's shrill, weirdly chipper,and just not comfortable to listen to for more than a few minutes.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Language and Society: What Your Speech Says About You?
I zoned out a lot during this audio book, something that very rarely happens. Mrs Fridland just didn't keep me interested all that long. The few points I do remember were interesting though.
What didn’t you like about Professor Valerie Fridland’s performance?
She has a high pitched voice, too shrill. Not pleasant.
Was Language and Society: What Your Speech Says About You worth the listening time?
I didn't retain a lot of the concepts. This might be a lecture better ingested from a written source material.
Any additional comments?
The content is interesting but I just couldn't finish it. Mrs Fridland's voice and fact that visualizing language-based concepts is hard make this for a fairly tough audio book to get through.

Painful attempts at humor, sudden yelling, and a subtitle so inaacurate I'd call it deceptive.
