Silence may be used as a lifegiving practice or in a destructive way at all levels of societal systems. One of the contentions of The Golden Window of Silence is that when one uses silence to listen to all levels, one may find the source of all non-violent communication.

It is by this means that silence becomes one of the most powerful means of social justice. 'Proceeds from book sales go to Sunbear Community Alliance, a Texas Non-Profit Corporation.'

This thoroughly revised Third Edition of Drive Yourself Sane, first published in 1993, remains the most reliable short introduction to 'general semantics' (GS) now available.

A remarkable system of thought founded by Alfred Korzybski (1879-1950), GS is based on a careful study of human behavior and scientific problem-solving, bridging applied psychology and practical philosophy. Drive Yourself Sane provides time-tested methods for critical and creative thinking and constructive communicating with a variety of problem-solving applications for mental hygiene, personal development, education, business, etc. The text and accompanying exercises help readers sharpen the primary tools they were born with: their individual brain-nervous systems with their marvelous capacities to adapt to change and to learn from and build upon their own and other people's experiences.

This Third Edition contains fascinating additional biographical material about Alfred Korzybski, based on research for Bruce Kodish's book, Korzybski: A Biography. Includes Notes, Bibliography and Index. I was introduced to General Semantics when I read Robert Heinlein as a youth. I have recently returned to it as a way to hone my critical thinking. I find that critical thinking is sorely lacking in many, many people so I can not recommend techniques for improving it any more enthusiastically than I already do. General Semantics is a very good technique.

Another system I am aware of is the Integral Model of Ken Wilber. Techniques such as these act as types of 'Western Zen,' to be a little glib.

General Semantics is a very good technique. Another system I am aware of is the Integral Model of Ken Wilber. Techniques such as these act as types of 'Western Zen,' to be a little glib. Investigate them for yourself. This is the first book I've read on the subject of General Semantics. It seems to me an excellent introduction to the subject. However, since I am new to General Semantics, I may not be in a position to judge whether or not this is truly an excellent introduction.

This book, along with Donald Robertson's The Philosophy of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, has helped to solidify my high esteem for Albert Ellis's Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). Both of these texts serve to place REBT within This is the first book I've read on the subject of General Semantics. It seems to me an excellent introduction to the subject.

This book, along with Donald Robertson's The Philosophy of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, has helped to solidify my high esteem for Albert Ellis's Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT).

Both of these texts serve to place REBT within a philosophical and intellectual context. It is clearly not the intent of these books to do this, but they do it for me as a reader interested in the topic. The only minor criticism I have of The Kodishes' book may be more of a criticism of General Semantics itself. In the chapter on Non-Verbal awareness, the authors seem to equate 'zen' with all forms of Buddhism. They also seem to imply that Elsa Gindler and Charlotte Selver invented what is essentially mindfulness meditation and walking meditation - two very common (and ancient) forms of Buddhist meditation. How does 'Semantic Relaxation' differ from these Buddhist practices?

The book is a really dense, enjoyable exploration of General Semantics, or how to recognize that we use language in imprecise ways. There's a lot of heavy reading in this, mostly in dissecting how humans go about experiencing the world, processing their experiences, and then communicating their experiences. I've found that when I keep the principles in the book in mind, it becomes easier to express myself to others, and I'm less prone to jumping on terrible assumptions.

I've found that when I keep the principles in the book in mind, it becomes easier to express myself to others, and I'm less prone to jumping on terrible assumptions. I really enjoyed this book for how very precise it was in the subject matter, as well as how consistent it was in dealing with subjects.

Considering the context of the book, it showed that the authors ate their own dog food. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it hugely valuable for me. I am reminded of the time I first became interested in Taoism and picked up the Tao Te Ching to read. It was a wonderful read but at the time that I read it I found it difficult to apply its poetic language to my day to day problems and challenges. As time went by I found my self in possession of more maturity and perspective and thus was able to make greater usage of it.

I had very much the same experience of first encountering the language model that Alfred Korzybsky put forward in his method of General Semantics. This book provided me with a very useful primer and guide for more effectively integrating the ideas of GS into my day to day evaluating and expression.
