Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up–Exploring the philosophical and psychological aspects of communication, Carlson encourages young people to begin with a study of their own thoughts, feelings, and reactions, and clarifies the difference between conversation and having a dialogue with someone. After the self-examination process, teens can begin to improve their communication skills with the people around them, including those they don't like. The author mixes Eastern philosophical principles like meditation and selflessness with psychological examinations of language and communication scripts that people perform in their daily lives. The principles and terms will likely be unfamiliar to teens, and the writing style is often inscrutable. There are many wonderful tips to effective communication in the book, but the format of lengthy chapters with little variation is not well suited to this audience. Useful in libraries with strong New Age or Eastern philosophy collections.–Jane Cronkhite, Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH

Format: Paperback
Talk: Teen Art Of Communication by Dale Carlson and Kishore Khairnar is an informative and "teen friendly" introduction to the importance of effective communication. Delving deeply into its focus on teen-aged communication habits, tendencies and frequencies, Talk provides an engaging and informative treatise on the improving communication through such mechanisms and incidents as self-discussion, talking to parents, teachers, bosses, siblings, friends, best friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, groups, disliked people, and even total strangers. Talk is very strongly recommended for its informative documentation of teen communication and providing adolescent readers with a knowledgeable guidance in dealing with the inevitable hardships and difficulties associated with teenage life in the process of self-discovery and verbal interaction with others.
