Description

All human activity depends upon the ability of human beings to work together consciously in language. This book addresses the question of group conversations, especially those intended to arrive at decisions or insights. The author starts from the artistic aspects of language and consciousness. Then, out of a deep understanding of the process involved, he shows what can go wrong and why. He describes how to recognize when a conversation needs tightening, speeding up or widening.
This book provides a fundamental guide to anyone wanting to be an active participant in group activity.
