What People are Saying About This

Mary Catherine Bateson

This is an exhilarating book. Cathy Salit shows how we can make ourselves more effective in our relationships with others not by adopting a set of slogans or rigid formulas but by activating the basic human capacity to learn through play, from the outside in, by performing the kind of person we wish to be. In the work place or at home, hers is a liberating approach that will both simplify and enrich your life. Enjoy. And reap the benefits. --Mary Catherine Bateson, cultural anthropologist and bestselling author of Composing a Life
