it was ok
bookshelves: communication, humor, nonfiction, how-to

The thesis of this book—that rather than responding to the subtext of annoying/hostile/clueless, you reply (if you reply) to the actual question being asked—is enormously empowering.

Alas, for the most part, the examples are far less useful. Not all humor travels well; doubtless, my own little blog posts, essays, and articles will fail to deliver with time.

But that thesis? Would make a great blog post.
