Publisher's Summary

As sociolinguistics expert Dr. Tannen reveals, no one is to blame for the familiar feeling among men and women that members of the opposite sex just don't understand them. The problem dates back to childhood, when children learn to use language in distinctly different ways; years later, their adult efforts to talk to each other often place them at cross purposes - even when both mean well and are sincerely trying to communicate. Now in this groundbreaking audio program, Dr. Tannen illustrates how the best intentions can go easily astray between spouses, family members, co-workers and friends and gives valuable insight to help you communicate better than ever before. This best seller has revolutionized the way men and women talk and listen to each other - at home, at work, and wherever the communications gap between the sexes can lead to troublesome misunderstandings.

I was assigned this book in a class a few semesters ago, and couldn't understand why. That was untill I read it. It is insightful, and gives explainations, to terrible relationships I have had in the past. Now when I get frustrated with someone I think back to this book, and try to understand whether we disagree or are just misunderstanding each others.
