    Title: That's Not What I Meant!: How Conversational Style Makes or Breaks Relationships

    Product Description

    “Tannen combines a novelist’s ear for the way people speak with a rare power of original analysis....Fascinating.”
    —Oliver Sacks, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and The Mind’s Eye

    In That’s Not What I Meant!, Deborah Tannen, renowned communication expert and author of the New York Times bestsellers You’re Wearing THAT? and You Just Don’t Understand, explores how conversational styles can make or break interpersonal relationships at home, at work, or at play. Fans of her books and the healthily curious reader interested in popular psychology, feminism, linguistics, or social sciences will be fascinated by Tannen’s remarkable insights into unintentional conversational confusion.  That’s Not What I Meant! is an essential guide to recognizing and adjusting what we say and how we are saying it in order to strengthen or save a relationship.
