A Good Talk

Daniel Menaker
Authors:
Daniel Menaker

A Good Talk is an analysis of and guide to that most exclusively human of all activities - conversation. Drawing on over forty years of experience in American letters, Menaker pinpoints the factors that drive and enliven every good conversation: the vagaries (and joys) of subtext; the deeper structure and meaning of conversational flow; the subliminal signals that guide our disclosures and confessions; and the countless other hurdles we must clear along the way. Moving beyond self-help musings and 'how to' advice, he has created a stylish, funny and surprising book: a celebration of 'the most excusively human of all activities'.In a time when conversation remains deeply important - for building relationships, for relaxing, even for figuring out who we are - and also increasingly imperiled (with Blackberries and texting increasingly in vogue), CAN WE TALK? is a refreshing celebration of the subtle adventures of a good conversation.

Mad In America

Robert Whitaker
Authors:
Robert Whitaker

Schizophrenics in the United States currently fare worse than patients in the world's poorest countries. In Mad in America , medical journalist Robert Whitaker argues that modern treatments for the severely mentally ill are just old medicine in new bottles, and that we as a society are deeply deluded about their efficacy. The widespread use of lobotomies in the 1920s and 1930s gave way in the 1950s to electroshock and a wave of new drugs. In what is perhaps Whitaker's most damning revelation, Mad in America examines how drug companies in the 1980s and 1990s skewed their studies to prove that new antipsychotic drugs were more effective than the old, while keeping patients in the dark about dangerous side effects. A haunting, deeply compassionate book,now revised with a new introduction, Mad in America raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of insanity," and what we value most about the human mind.

Kyle Pruett, Marsha Pruett

Men and women not only have naturally different communication styles, but unique approaches to parenting as well. While mothers tend to overprotect their kids, fathers tend to push them toward independence. And whereas many experts tend to advocate a united front," Drs. Kyle and Marsha Pruett reveal how Mom and Dad not always being on exactly the same page, which, initially, may seem to cause conflict, can actually strengthen the whole family. Informed by the Pruetts' research and extensive experience with parents and children, Partnership Parenting offers a new outlook. In addition to fascinating biological insights, the book features strategies for negotiating common landmine situations" from birth to age eight, from discipline and bedtime to helping kids with homework and teaching them responsibility. With wisdom and humour, Partnership Parenting helps couples take advantage of their individual strengths to raise confident children while simultaneously improving their marriage.
