Rusty's World

Rusty’s Reading List 2019 | June 25, 2019

The reason I have this book is a little unusual. I was contacted by Oxford Press a while back because the author wanted to use a quote from my blog. I agreed and they promised to send me a copy of the book… and here it is!

This is definitely a ‘scholarly’ take. The verbiage is a lot to slog through for the uninitiated (including me), but if you can get past that she is using the verbiage to make solid points. Can words constitute harm? Well, of course they can, as far as I am concerned. McGowan doesn’t leave it at that, she uses this book to prove it.

This book is the counterpoint from any time someone has said ‘sticks & stones’ to you. Words can hurt a lot worse than broken bones.
