1980 Dorset Press hardcover, with stained dust jacket, by the psycholinguist professor at San Diego State University. I found this copy yesterday in the free books pile on the porch of Montclair Library.

Edit May 5, 2021: This was a somewhat helpful guide to verbal jousting, and how to de-escalate it. Its focus on the particular type of mannered verbal manipulation is a bit limited, perhaps. But the idea of identifying and learning how to respond best to different modes of verbal challenge is very useful. I am looking forward to reading the sequel next, curious what else the author has in mind.

Aside from loving shared books, my main passion in life is supporting the human rights work of my good friend, Anni Cyrus. 💖 💖 Her life story of survival as a childhood refugee is astounding, and quite moving!
