Sensible Thinking for Turbulent Times
by Martin H. Levinson
In these times of rapid change and constant upheaval, can we learn
to think and communicate more effectively --at home, in school, on the job, and in the larger world. Sensible Thinking for Turbulent Times, which
is based on the formulations of general semantics, says yes, yes, and yes! Topics
in it include practical ways to improve your thinking ability, emotional self-management,
creativity, and an analysis of important social issues like the
drug problem and America's foreign interventions.
