Publisher's Summary

This simple, straightforward guide to effective communication is for anyone who has ever wanted to “eat their words.”
Do you ever feel that your words produce the exact opposite effect of what you were hoping for - escalating tensions rather than solving problems? Author of Emotional Bullshit Carl Alasko has found that with the right guidance, anyone can learn effective communication skills. In Say This, Not That, Alasko presents readers with simple instructions for what to say...and what not to say. Accompanying each pair of statements is a brief discussion of what makes one so negative and destructive, and the other inviting of the kind of discussion needed. This book is the ultimate resource for anyone who longs to consistently say the right thing at the right time.

Most Helpful

Way too basic and rudimentary

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone in middle school perhaps.

Has Say This, Not That turned you off from other books in this genre?


How could the performance have been better?

Better lessons

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Narrator was fine. The book was meager and the lessons are really best for a young adult or someone with Aspergers.

Any additional comments?

Should be taught in school

An absolute must read for learning how to better communicate and be more efficient at it. If we learned these practices early - high school , the world as a whole would be much different
