Sometimes people are so busy communicating they don't listen to each other. TALK LANGUAGE tells you how to understand what people are really saying, and why. Words represent only a small part of the information transmitted in conversation; just as important are circumstances and body language. TALK LANGUAGE shows how to decode a wide range of everyday signals, so you can get the message or intentions a speaker is really conveying - whether intentionally or not. It gives many examples of every day conversational phrases and what they really mean. TALK LANGUAGE will help you to express yourself clearly and concisely - and to interpret others' intentions if they do not reveal them. Its message can be applied to almost every facet of daily life.
