New Book

If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look Deborah Tannen’s newest book, You’re Wearing That? Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation. It’s already on the best seller list. In one of the interviews Tannen expressed the importance of the study of conversation by saying “understanding how language works within relationships, you can change patterns you’re not happy with.” It’s the same as the connection we make between theory and skills in our texts—the more you understand of how things work, the more control you’ll have over how things work.
