Description
Information
How the Way We Talk Can Make or Break Family Relationships Throughout Our Lives.

Why does talk in families so often go in circles, leaving us tied up in knots? Linguist Deborah Tannen reveals why talk among adult family members often leads to arguments and hurt feelings. She shows us how to separate the obvious word meaning from the subtext - the unstated but powerful meaning that comes from the history of our relationships in the family.

Using real conversations from the lives of real people, Tannen shows us how talk in a family is a high-wire act as we balance connection and power, struggling to get close without giving up our freedom. By helping us understand what conversations in the family really mean, she shows how to improve relationships with family members throughout our lives.
