    Journaling is basically the act of recording your thoughts and feelings by jotting them down on a daily basis. This art has been around for hundreds of years now, and has been used by most people as a means to relieve stress and express themselves.One of the most popular journals is that one by Samuel Pepys, a naval administrator in the 1600’s who made it a point to write down what happened in his lifetime—from his personal feelings, to important events that not only affected him, but affected the world, as well. These events include the Anglo-Dutch War, the Restoration of the English Monarchy, and even the Great Fire and the Great Plague of London. Now, a library in Cambridge is named after him.

    Verbal Judo is the martial art of the mind and mouth that can show you how to be better prepared in every verbal encounter. Listen and speak more effectively, engage people through empathy (the most powerful word in the English language), avoid the most common conversational disasters, and use proven strategies that allow you to successfully communicate your point of view and take the upper hand in most disputes. 
    Verbal Judo offers a creative look at conflict that will help you defuse confrontations and generate cooperation from your spouse, your boss, and even your teenager. As the author says, "when you react, the event controls you. When you respond, you’re in control." 
    This new edition features a fresh new cover and a foreword demonstrating the legacy of Verbal Judo founder and author George Thompson, as well as a never-before-published final chapter presenting Thompson’s "Five Universal Truths" of human interaction.
