In this companion volume to the bestselling Choice Theory, Dr. William Glasser and his wife, Carleen Glasser, have imagined typical conversations in real-life situations--between parent and child, two partners in a relationship, teacher and student, and boss and employee. On the left-hand page is a typical controlling order or threat, and on the right a more reasonable version, using choice theory, which is more likely to get a favorable response from the child, lover, student, or employee. Through these examples, the principles of choice theory come alive.

Neat little book with excellent practical information
This small book gives a wide range of examples of "languaging" with reality therapy (control theory). It is amazing how "languaging" can make a huge difference in how communication is understood or the context of the words. This book is especially useful for parents of teens in applying reality therapy kinds of practical approaches to their kids. Natural consequences, taking responsibility and making useful choices. The mere reading of the difference between conventional and habitual phrasing .. and the control theory type of speak gives insight. This book is best as a companion to Glasser's other books.

By KJ Jenkins
This book is very poorly written. I was disappointed especially after reading the well written Choice Theory book by William Glasser. The book provides examples of senarios in which a person responds using external control and then give a "better" responce using choice theory. In many of the examples, the choice thoery response is not even relevant to the original situation. There are a few good examples in the book; howver I believe that overall it is a waste of money. If one reads the Choice Theory book and grasps the understanding, there is no reason to purchase the "Language of" book.

Disappointed in price
If it weren't for the price I would give it more stars.
It was worth 3.99 but certainly not more.
