From the Publisher
"Taking the War Out of Our Words ought to be required reading in high school, college, before getting married, and before becoming a parent. Sharon Strand Ellison's work has the power to turn conflict into cooperation, resentment into rapport. This book can change lives and relationships: Read it and reap." -- Sam Horn, author of Tongue Fu! and Take the Bully by the Horns
"The premise is powerful: Human communication has been shaped by our focus on defensive self-protection and power struggle."
-- Mike Maza, Dallas Morning News
"We need Sharon Ellison's work in our homes, in our offices, and most of all, in our hearts."
-- Evelyn C. White, editor, The Black Women's Health Book
"Ellison has developed a powerful method, with unlimited potential, that will strengthen interpersonal relationships, increase organizational effectiveness, and contribute greatly to building a more productive and harmonious society."
-- Diana Chesterfield, Corporate Manager, Nordstrom --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have used these techniques when I teach my students, dealing with co-workers, even when talking about internal issues with family members. In the past, any discussion would end up in a shouting match and someone would always get their feelings hurt. Now, I use the techniques in this book and we all have real dialogue -- not just a bunch of monologues.
I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who is interested in conflict resolution.
