I am sure you will like my book -- Heidi Cullen did: http://www.climatecentral.org/blogs/romms-new-book-language-intelligence-is-insightful-important-14790/

If you haven't bought it yet, email me and I'll send you a review copy. Also check out my blog, http://ClimateProgress.org


I recently read Language Intelligence and really enjoyed it. It's more of a how-to book than a scholarly treatment of the subject, which in hindsight makes sense, since scholarly treatments tend to suffer from exactly the same sorts of failings that the book is explicitly trying to correct. I especially enjoyed the material on Abraham Lincoln's use of rhetorical figures.

Highly recommended.


Now I understand why I have Rhetoric and English proficiency class while I'm an IT student. It taught me to use the right words and help me to somehow persuade my clients even my boss. LOL. Language Intelligence should be implemented because it can make someone skillful with communication.
