What People are Saying About This

Peter H. Jackson
"Whether you tweet, text, or yammer, Read Between the Lines will fast-forward your ability to communicate in the new world. I thought I was an early pioneer in texting. By reading RBTL, I learned more in thirty minutes than I had in five years of finger typing. More importantly, I learned how to look cool to my children. You need to get to the point, be clever, and figure out how to take advantage of the limited space (characters) provided by services like Twitter. The new world is here now, and you better get hip or get deleted."--(Peter H. Jackson, Silicon Valley CEO & Director)
Caroline Tagg
"My doctoral research shows that there is much more to texting than abbreviations and phonetic spelling: Texting is a creative, expressive, and practical outlet for a surprising range of uses. In short, texting deserves much better press than it usually gets! It's great to see a book like Read Between the Lines address texting in such an entertaining and informative way."--(Dr. Caroline Tagg, PhD., First person to receive a PhD in texting, Birmingham University, U.K.)
