Reviews - What do customers think about Words That Hurt, Words That Heal: How to Choose Words Wisely and Well?

Get this book, quick  May 17, 2008
The best book around on this subject. Intelligently written without being scholarly and academic. Get copies for yourself and all of your friends. The Bible and Jewish tradition have much to say about speech and that muscle in our mouths that causes so much trouble. Applying the wisdom in this book can change one's life. Be quick to listen, slow to speak. Heed the words of Proverbs and James 3:5-6. Speak like you want others to speak to you. Speak words that build up--not those that tear down.
Words That Hurt  Jan 26, 2008
Wonderful, thought provoking, life changing book. Really caused me to examine my speech habits and to consider the great power of my spoken words. This would be a great book for a club or even a study group. Jew or Gentile could gain much from reading and applying this book.
LOVE IT  Jan 17, 2008
This book's awesome! Powerful messages that change the way one looks at the words. Loved it. Received as described!
Words That Hurt, Words That Heal  Oct 29, 2007
I have owned this book for many years, both my son and daughter have a copy. This is an absolute must read not just for those of the us who are Jewish; but for anyone who struggles with the truth or is incapable of telling it. I have given this particular book many, many times. Only recently I thought of a business arrangement involving a particular couple who would benefit from this book. I have ordered this book for them and hope this reading sets them free.
Words That Hurt, Words That Heal  Jul 24, 2007
I've only just begun reading this book but I'm familiar with the content and have read several of this author's other books. He is a wonderful writer and his work both inspires and educates. I highly recommend anything written or co-written by Joseph Telushkin.
