Abstract:

Synopsis: Women and men live in different worlds ... made of different words. Spending nearly four years on the New York Times bestseller list, this is the book that brought gender differences in ways of speaking to the forefront of public awareness. With a combination of scientific insight and humor, the author shows why women and men can walk away from the same conversation with completely different impressions of what was said. Studded with examples of real conversations, this book provides readers with the tools to understand what went wrong - and to find a common language in which to strengthen relationships at work and at home. A classic in the field of interpersonal relations, this book will change forever the way you approach conversations.
