That’s Not What I Meant!

By Deborah Tannen

P575

MANILA, Philippines - At home, on the job, in a personal relationship, it’s often not what you say but how you say it that counts. Deborah Tannen revolutionized our thinking about relationships between women and men in her bestseller You Just Don’t Understand. In That’s Not What I Meant!, the internationally renowned sociolinguist and expert on communication demonstrates how our conversational signals (voice level, pitch and intonation, rhythm and timing, even the simple turns of phrase we choose) are powerful factors in the success or failure of any relationship. Tannen’s classic work on interpersonal communication will help you to hear what isn’t said and to recognize how your personal conversational style meshes or clashes with others.

Carla, who is “sophisticated, beautiful, and radiates confidence the way a towering inferno radiates heat,” isn’t about to let anyone take away her hard-earned crown. The wide-open ending will have young drama-queens-in-training eagerly searching the shelves for the next installment of Lola’s adventures.
