Although we live in an ocean of words, we rarely acknowledge their power to uplift or put down, to inspire or discourage, to help or hurt. But in this jewel of a book, Hal Urban -- parent, award-winning teacher, and author of the classic "Life's Greatest Lessons" -- shows us simple and immediate ways that we can use language to change lives -- both our own and those around us.
