Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High
Solid content that can be put into action
The message this book delivers can be summed up with "communicate with others as you would like them to communicate with you." Incredible book that breaks down the components for engaging in uncomfortbable and/or important conversations. As the authors state, you must "First Start with the Heart". By that, they provide a baseline that requires you to understand what you want and don't want ...
How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It
$10 is a laughable cost for such insightful information.
My marriage is not out of the woods yet, but hopefully this book (and perhaps counselling) will help us get there. I burned through this quick read within a two day time-span. It really brings a great deal of insight to either party about how the other may be feeling or interpreting what is being said. I can't even begin to describe how much of my own life I've read in these pages. If you are ...

Very interesting. Read in 2 days
A very interesting book. You simply can't stop reading it as every story has a meaning and a lesson. It's a glimpse into the world that many people only envy. Read it .... you'll enjoy it.
Talking to Girls About Duran Duran: One Young Man's Quest for True Love and a Cooler Haircut
The author of the national bestseller Love is a Mix Tape returns, with a different-but equally personal and equally universal- spin on music as memory. "No rock critic-living or dead, American or otherwise-has ever written about pop music with the evocative, hyperpoetic perfectitude of Rob Sheffield." So said Chuck Klosterman about Love is a Mix Tape , Sheffield's paean to a lost love via its soundtrack. Now, in Talking to Girls ...
This could generate some really interesting discussion!
I thought this was just a really interesting book. It generated some great discussions in our family and I am looking forward to reading it to my students. There are so many interesting topics within this book. I would highly recommend it!
Smooth Talking Stranger
St. Martin's Press
Kleypas' Best Modern Romance.
I loved this book. Jack & Ella were a lot of fun, and it was less emotionally draining than Blue Eyed Devil or Sugar Daddy. Ella is a hippie advice columnist who gets a call from her mother than her younger sister has dumped an infant on her and that Ella better come get the baby. Ella has to take care of the baby while her younger sister gets help at some kind of mental-health retreat for ...
On Talking Terms With Dogs: Calming Signals
Direct Book Service
Great book for owners of aggressive dogs!
This book taught a seasoned dog owner some new tricks and gave me insight into my dog's behavior via his actions. I highly recommend the book!
Talking to Heaven: A Medium's Message of Life After Death
James Van Praagh
Talking to Heaven
I would recommend this book to anyone. If you have an open mind, I think you will get alot out of it. I find I am less judgmental of people, more loving and more hopeful also. I sent this book to my sisters, hoping they might get something out of it.
Talking, Drawing, Writing: Lessons for Our Youngest Writers
Mary Ellen Giacobbe
This book is WONDERFUL. It clearly lays out mini-lessons in a way that makes you feel like you are watching them in action. It lists trade books to use as examples to tie into workshop. The format of the book is very reader-friendly and is not overly technical. I love that it is centered on kindergarten writers, although it is certainly useful for other primary grades as well. There are also some ...
Talking Back to OCD: The Program That Helps Kids and Teens Say "No Way" -- and Parents Say "Way to Go"
John S. March MD MPH
The Guilford Press
When we first realized our son was showing signs of OCD, we began to research any information that would somehow help us. We needed material that was practical and would give answers and guidance to enable us to get our son back. We found this book and began working through the steps with our son. The explainations were clear. The quotes from other kids with OCD were encouraging. The layout was ...
Talking With Your Hands, Listening With Your Eyes: A Complete Photographic Guide to American Sign Language
Square One Publishers
One of the easiest ways to learn sign language!
At first when I ordered this book, I was skeptical because of what people said learning from a book was like: difficult with a hard time looking at pictures to figure out what they mean. The pictures in this book are very easy to understand, although not DVD quality material, I would say this book is the next best thing!
The Art of Talking to Anyone: Essential People Skills for Success in Any Situation
I enjoyed reading this book because of the actual examples it gives that you may adjust as you need to. Most other conversation books don't give you that, and to that effect, don't really help people that are trying to figure exactly what to say rather than just underlying concepts. Though much of the book may seem bland for those who don't like to take manners into account, it is written ...
A Chicken's Guide to Talking Turkey with Your Kids About Sex
Kathy Flores Bell
Always a Winner
A long time fan of Leman's work and appearances, I was thrilled to see that he had a book on a subject I have been dreading discussing with our 9 year old son. Leman's humor and good-sense parenting advice reminded me that teaching your kids about sex begins long before "the talk" becomes necessary - it is the way you raise your children, with limitations, without instant gratification, and in ...
The Talking Earth
Jean Craighead George
The Talking Earth: Speaks Out Loud!
The Talking Earth by Jean Craighead George The Talking Earth is about a Seminole girl named Billy Wind who is very curious. When her tribal elder spoke of spirits everywhere there is, Billie said she did not believe in that. The religious leaders got very angry and asked what punishment she should give herself. In sarcasm, she said that she should go to the pay-hay-okee (the Everglades)and ...
Teaching for Comprehending and Fluency: Thinking, Talking, and Writing About Reading, K-8
Irene C. Fountas
Gay Su Pinnell
Wonderful Reading Resource to build on Guiding Readers and Writers
Let me start by saying this book builds off of Guiding Readers and Writers, also by Fountas and Pinnell. If you haven't yet invested in that book and you teach reading or writing to grades 3-12, that's where you want to start. This book will not be nearly as helpful until you have read and engaged in the teaching strategies laid out in Guiding Readers and Writers. However, if you are currently ...
Talking from 9 to 5: Women and Men at Work
Where was this book 30 years ago when I needed it?
I don't remember how this got onto my book shelves, but there it was when I was looking for something to read. Wish I'd read it years ago. When I think back to the times in my work life when I had difficulty, it was never because I couldn't accomplish a technical task. No, it was because I couldn't communicate effectively with a co-worker or boss. (Sometimes my being a knucklehead didn't help ...
Talking with Young Children about Adoption
Ms. Mary Watkins
Dr. Susan Fisher M.D.
Yale University Press
I Always Recommend this Book to Parents!
I have spoken to many adoptive parents over the years and without fail, I always recommend this book. It is a true gem in adoption literature. I found the research appendix at the back fascinating--the authors give findings from adoptees perceptions of adoption from age three to teens. Written by adoptive moms who are also professionals in the mental health field, it is a book that should be on ...
Talking Dirt: The Dirt Diva's Down-to-Earth Guide to Organic Gardening
If you are new to gardening, it covers it all...If you are a pro, you'll still learn lots
I am in a major gardening and landscaping obsession right now as my reviews and purchases note. Consequently, my reading is consisting almost entirely of books on the subject. Most books, however, are geared towards the writer's personal style, interests, or region. I was so impressed that this book was uber thorough in capturing it ALL. What I mean by this is that our front yard is very ...
The Talking Eggs
Robert D. San Souci
I WISH WE HAD MORE LIKE THIS ONE
There is not much not to like about this work. The author has given us a great folk tale, well written, wonderful illustrations, a work full of lessons and just a pure simple fun story to read. Like all good fables this one not only entertains, but teaches some very valuable lessons in life and living (something most of we adults could use a dose of now and again). This is a great book for a ...

He presents through it a series of college - commencement addresses he has given, and comments on those.
