SHL Book Group: Don't Think of an Elephant!

November 26, 2017 4:00 pm

Barnes & Noble
1812 Sam Rittenberg Blvd
Charleston, SC

For the November 26, 2017 meeting, Book Club is reading: The ALL NEW Don't Think of an Elephant! Know Your Values and Frame the Debate by George Lakoff (2014) PB 195p. $11.55, Kindle $8.10, Audible $14.69 7hrs.

Ten years after writing the definitive, international bestselling book on political debate and messaging, George Lakoff returns with new strategies about how to frame today's essential issues. (Amazon review) Geri recommended this updated version of the 2004 book which the club read in the past. Yvonne's review: I am reading it now and it is blowing my comfortable socks right off.

Please note that it is not a strict rule that you have read the book by the time of the club meeting. We find that those who have not read the material beforehand can contribute interesting insights to the topic and then are compelled to do further reading. Always a good thing.

We meet at the Barnes and Noble on Sam Rittenberg in the back of the Music Section at the which is on the right of the store halfway back.
