This simple, straightforward guide to effective communication is for anyone who has ever wanted to eat their words.

Author of Emotional Bullshit Carl Alasko has found that with the right guidance, anyone can learn effective communication skills. In Say This, Not That, Alasko presents readers with simple instructions for what to say . . . and what not to say. Accompanying each pair of statements is a brief discussion of what makes one so negative and destructive, and the other inviting of the kind of discussion needed. This book is the ultimate resource for anyone who longs to consistently say the right thing at the right time.

My answers on this were not straightforward, so: Pirates is because I love the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland; Loki because Tom Hiddleston is yummy, and he IS Loki; Sushi needs no explanation, mmmmmm; multilingual just gives one more options for reading, duh 🙄; I love Yoshi‘s Island & Centipede, but rarely play. Most often, I play Yahtzee & Uno, but they aren‘t board games.

Thanks for making me think, @RealLifeReading #thisorthat

I saw this come up on my recommended list on Hoopla. It gives very practical examples of things to say and difficult situations. You would think that these are so commonsensical that people would use them all the time. The world would run a bit smoother with communication like this.
