By Suzette Haden Elgin
Frequent and repeated use of unanswerable questions, scalding accusations, sarcasm, insinuations, and even icy silence is more than simply unpleasant; it is abusive, destructive, and frequently leads to escalating arguments and physical violence. Suzette Haden Elgin, creator of the Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense, has developed a unique and revolutionary way to break the cycle of verbal violence and eliminate it from your life without ruining your marriage, risking your job, or alienating friends or loved ones.
