How to Find the Right Words: A guide to delivering lifes most awkward messages

Life constantly requires us to give other people some hugely awkward messages: that we don’t love them anymore; that we do love them (though we’re not meant to); that they smell a bit; that they’re fired; that we’re furious with them (though we adore them); or that their music is too loud...Often, out of embarrassment, we just stay quiet. Occasionally we explode. And, typically, we stumble about, looking for the right words – dreading that we didn’t find them and thereby causing more hurt than we should.This is a book to help us locate the best possible words to get across a range of life’s most difficult messages. In 20 case studies drawn from relationships, friendships, work, our families and interactions with strangers we are gently shown what we might – in an ideal world – find ourselves saying to make our intentions known while causing minimal harm.We laugh, we recognise our troubles – and we’re introduced to a range of deeply empathetic ways to navigate some of our most acute social dilemmas.
