520    "Verbal Judo is the classic guide to the martial art of 
       the mind and mouth that can help you defuse confrontations
       and generate cooperation, whether you're talking to a boss,
       a spouse, or even a teenager. For more than a generation, 
       Dr. George J. Thompson's essential handbook has taught 
       people how to communicate more confidently and 
       persuasively in any situation. Verbal Judo shows you how 
       to listen and speak more effectively, engage others 
       through empathy (the most powerful word in the English 
       language), avoid the most common conversational disasters,
       and use proven strategies to successfully express your 
       point of view - and take the lead in most disputes. This 
       updated edition includes a new foreword and a chapter 
       featuring Dr. Thompson's five universal truths of "human 
       interaction""--Page 4 of cover.
