Praise

"The ‘metamessages’–implications behind the spoken words–she decodes in You’re Wearing THAT? Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation are so familiar, it hurts when you laugh." –Cathleen Medwick, O Magazine

Deborah Tannen’s groundbreaking book You Just Don’t Understand improved male-female relationships about, oh, 100 percent. Now she’s poised to do the same for moms and daughters in You’re Wearing THAT? Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation. Listen, and get ready to make peace! –Kimberly Tranell, Glamour

"The illuminating extracts from mother-daughter colloquies that she cites bring to life both the soothing ointment and the ripped-open scars possible in interchanges on … age-old sources of conflict for this extraordinarily intense kind of relationship." –Whitney Scott

“Tannen analyzes and decodes scores of conversations between moms and daughters. These exchanges are so real they can make you squirm as you relive the last fraught conversation you had with your own mother or daughter. But Tannen doesn’t just point out the pitfalls of the mother-daughter relationship, she also provides guidance for changing the conversations (or the way that we feel about the conversations) before they degenerate into what Tannen calls a mutually aggravating spiral, a "self-perpetuating cycle of escalating responses that become provocations." – The San Francisco Chronicle
