When you react, the event controls you. When you respond, youre in control. Verbal Judo is the classic guide to the martial art of the mind and mouth that can help you defuse confrontations and generate cooperation, whether youre talking to a boss, a spouse, or even a teenager. For more than a generation, Dr. George J. Thompsons essential handbook has taught people how to communicate more confidently and persuasively in any situation.

Stop finding yourself on the losing end of an argument. With Verbal Judo youll be able to have your sayand say what you mean.
