The bestselling author of "You Just Don't Understand" returns with a penetrating look at how we, as a culture, rarely discuss or debate anymore. Instead we argue, and the results, as Tannen spells out can be disastrous. Tannen explains how the media, educators, and politicians give credence to many harmful and false ideas just in the effort to present both sides of every story.
