Product description

Review

Civil discourse is one of humanity's founding institutions and it faces an existential threat: We, the people, need to talk about how we talk to one another. Celeste Headlee shows us how (Ron Fournier, New York Times bestselling author of Love That Boy and publisher of Crain’s Detroit)

We Need To Talk is an important read for a conversationally-challenged, disconnected age. Headlee is a talented, honest storyteller and her advice has helped me become a better spouse, friend and mother (Jessica Lahey, author of New York Times bestseller The Gift of Failure)

This powerful debut offers ten strategies for improving conversational skills. Tidbits from sociological studies and anecdotes from history, including from civil rights activist Xernona Clayton's groundbreaking conversations with KKK leader Calvin Craig, round out a book that takes its own advice and has much to communicate (Publishers Weekly)

In the course of her career, Headlee has interviewed thousands of people from all walks of life and learned that sparking a great conversation is really a matter of a few simple habits that anyone can learn (Jessica Stillman, Inc.)

This book is necessary . . . Headlee's treatise on creating space for valuable mutual reciprocity is one that should become a handbook in any school, business or even a doctor's office where the everyday person visits (George Elerick, Buzzfeed)

A well-researched and careful analysis of how and why we talk with one another - our strengths and (myriad) weaknesses . . . A thoughtful discussion and sometimes passionate plea for civility and consideration in conversation (Kirkus Reviews)

Refreshingly honest....In the era of the lost art of conversation, Headlee helps us find our voice (Henry Bass, Essence)

The perfect pre-Thanksgiving read to head off family squabbles and turn the holiday meal into a feast of ideas instead of a political fracas (Karin Gillespie, Augusta Chronicle)
