Publisher Comments:

Joseph Telushkin is renowned for his warmth, his erudition, and his richly anecdotal insights, and in Words That Hurt, Words That Heal he focuses these gifts on the words we use in public and in private, revealing their tremendous power to shape relationships. With wit and wide-ranging intelligence, Rabbi Telushkin explains the harm in spreading gossip, rumors, or others' secrets, and how unfair anger, excessive criticism, or lying undermines true communication. By sensitizing us to subtleties of speech we may never have considered before, he shows us how to turn every exchange into an opportunity.

Remarkable for its clarity and practicality, Words That Hurt, Words That Heal illuminates the powerful effects we create by what we say and how we say it.

Synopsis:

Rabbi Telushkin explains the harm done by spreading gossip, teaches why anger, criticism, and lying destroy any possibility of true communication, and shows how to turn every exchange into an opportunity.

Description:

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

"Words That Hurt, Worlds that Heal: How to Choose Words Wisely and Well" is a must read for every adult who writes and speaks. Your family, work environment, and church/synagogue will benefit when you read and adapt Joseph Telushkin's practical advice. Imagine the good that would result if even ten percent of American celebrities, politicians, business and labor leaders, media writers and spokespeople would be more aware of the damage of gossip and slander and take to heart Telushkin's advice.
