Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

As bestselling author Suzette Haden Elgin proves, you don't have to live your life on red alert. With her Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense techniques, you'll be able to respond clearly to hostile comments from others—or deliver necessary negative messages of your own—without sacrificing your dignity or principles. You'll learn to:
  • Keep domestic disagreements from escalating
  • Deliver criticism to coworkers, employers, or employees
  • Handle aggressive, negative comments about race, politics, or religion
  • Provide discipline without increasing hostility
  • Use language that reduces tension and creates rapport in every situation

About the Author

She is nationally recognized for her seminars and public speaking and is the author of ten books on the Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense, including Genderspeak, You Can't Say That to Me!, The Gentle Art of Communicating with Kids and Try to Feel It My Way (all published by Wiley)
