Gossip: The Power of the Tongue, Jewish Wisdom for Human Relations

by Stephen M. Wylen
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Believing that idle gossip and malicious speech are the most frequent and pervasive sins of ordinary life, Rabbi Wylen addresses the reasons why people persist in patterns of speech that disrupt relationships, create unhappiness, and even endanger lives. Using examples from everyday speech, he analyzes the tale-bearing, false judgment, untruths, revenge, and even dangers of favorable judgment contained in ordinary discourse. From Jewish tradition and even Miss Manners, Wylen supports the healing qualities of nonresponse to insult, confidences, confession, and consoling words. Recommended for public and seminary libraries.
