Editorial Reviews

Review

“Penetrating ... lively and accessible ... Paying closer attention to function words [Pennebaker] advises, can help us understand the social relations that those words reflect. Unfortunately, we might not be able to pay proper attention until we're all equipped with automatic word counters. Until that day, we have Pennebaker as an indefatigable guide to the little words that he boldly calls 'keys to the soul.'” ―New York Times Book Review

“Anyone who reads his book will become much more conscious about how he or she uses words when talking to friends, when talking to the public, or when writing for the public ... Pennebaker's new book is fascinating and fun” ―Austin American Statesman

“Ingenious” ―Slate

“Provocative ... eye-opening ... The Secret Life of Pronouns is studded with muse-worthy examples of language's hidden power” ―Dallas Morning News
