Overview

PORTABLE PROFESSOR™ is a series of exciting and informative lectures recorded by some of today's most renowned university and college professors. Each course introduces listeners to fascinating, and sometimes startling, insights into the intellectual forces that shape our understanding of the world. Each package includes 14 riveting lectures presented by notable professors as well as a book-length course guide.

Professor Deborah Tannen's groundbreaking research into the fundamental differences between the ways in which the sexes communicate using language forms the basis for this fascinating series of lectures. From conversational style and body language to the use of tone and idiom, and beginning very early in life, men and women relate to each other and among themselves in startlingly different—and surprisingly predictable—ways. This course explores many of the reasons for these differences and probes the pitfalls, consequences, and benefits of these varying modes of interaction.

    Should be a required course for all couples!

    This course is the key to understanding your mate, your business associate or your family. I wish I had had the benefit of this insight years ago, it could have saved lots of misunderstandings over the years. Who knew we were so predictable! Course is delivered in an easy, entertaining style.. loved it.

    A Gold Mine!

    If you find yourself wondering what your partner is thinking OR feel that their behavior is self serving, then this edition is for you. You will find out why you and your partner communicate differently, why NEITHER of you are wrong, and how to bridge the gap. Now, arguments are about the substance being debated, not the style of debate. It has freed me of many of my self imposed prisons and put a new glimmer on my relationship. A MUST for anyone looking to enrich the quality of life with their partner.

    Very Interesting and Well Presented

    It's a fun and very interesting course. The examples are often funny but strike a cord of familarity.
