Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tannen combines a novelist’s ear for the way people speak with a rare power of original analysis…fascinating.” Oliver Sacks, New York Times bestselling author of Hallucinations
“Calling on her research into the workings of dialogue, Tannen examines the functioning of argument and interruption, and convincingly supports her case for the existence of ‘genderlect,’ contending that the better we understand it, the better our chances of bridging the communications gap integral to the battle of the sexes.” Publishers Weekly
