Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Words That Hurt, Words That Heal brings Telushkin's famously warm and erudite perspective to bear on the words we use both in public and in private, and illustrates their power to build relationships — or tear them down. Telushkin explains the harm we do when we spread gossip, teaches why anger, criticism, and lying destroy any possibility of true communication, and shows how to turn every exchange into an opportunity. We discover subtleties of speech we may never have considered before-and we uncover the true meaning of what we say.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 189-207) and index.

About the Author

A widely known spiritual leader and scholar, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin is the author of eleven influential Jewish books, including A Code of Jewish Ethics; Words That Hurt, Words That Heal; Biblical Literacy; and four novels. He lives in New York City and lectures throughout the United States.
