Stop arguing and start communicating about politics! With How to Restore Sanity to Our Political Conversations, Meryl Runion empowers readers to have dynamic conversations rather than futile squabbles when talk with family, neighbors, and friends turns political. Runion guides readers to defuse explosive emotions and turn angry tirades into productive dialogue. How to Restore Sanity to Our Political Conversations contains practical advice and wisdom for the average citizen who has opinions --- or is around people with opinions --- about current events. This timely book is not for politicians or pundits like O'Reilly, Beck, Olbermann, Maddow, Obama, Palin, or Pelosi --- behind their podiums and on their stages; It is for the anyone with opinions to share --- at the kitchen table, in the office, on Facebook, at the gym, and in the carpool. Yes, you can talk about politics ... after you've read this book!
