Law, Ethics, and Customs:
Often worse than physical harm is the pain caused by words. Whether it's an insult from a friend, criticism from a boss, or a reprimand from a parent, words can hurt us deeply. In his book, Words That Hurt, Words That Heal, Joseph Telushkin brings home to bear his famously warm, erudite and richly anecdotal perspective on how words we use both in our public and private lives can either hurt or heal. This book guides us through the many dilemmas we face when we talk about others -- through gossip, rumor, and private revelation -- and to others -- through anger, criticism, humiliation and lying -- and shows us how to incorporate these lessons on the power of words into our daily lives.
