Pennebaker either wrote an extremely boring book about a fascinating subject, or an extremely fascinating book about a boring subject. Clearly he's excited about this topic, but I'm just not sure it was worth writing an entire book about it. For me, it comes close to being interesting. Word usage, word choices, and what that says about us is interesting. Data analysis of the same, also interesting. Does this require an entire volume dedicated to the topic? Probably not. If I would have read a long web article on this, I probably would have felt justified in the 30 minutes or so I spent on it. As it was, it just dragged on a little too long. That said, it was well written and his passion and enthusiasm comes through and helps us (the readers) get to the finish line at the end. ( )

Wonderful book that really makes you think about the smallest of words. Pennebaker, a behavioral psychologist, has spent years studing how the language we use reflects our emotional states. His findings, that what he calls function or stealth words, words like; the, and, but, is, was, over, before,I, and we are the one that revile much about our emotional states and how we see ourselves and each other. Pennebaker presents all this in a lively writing style that stays free of jargon. For those of you who loved "The Tipping Point" or "Freakonomics" this is your next book. ( )

As far as content goes, this was an amazing experience. This book, [b:The Secret Life of Pronouns: What Our Words Say About Us|10890464|The Secret Life of Pronouns What Our Words Say About Us|James W. Pennebaker|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1317067480s/10890464.jpg|15806244], describes a new field of research into the detailed variations in our patterns of speech and writing dependent on any number of factors.

Fascinating subject, kinda amateur book. Best as a reference for writers. ( )

This book had an excellent premise, but the researchers (a) didn't have enough material to turn this into a full length book and (b) were not as capable as writing for laypeople as they needed to be. The end result was a bit of interesting research that wasn't properly translated from academic manuscript to laypeople-friendly writing and ended up being a boring slog.

I read this book off and on for two years and got about a third of the way through before I finally gave up on it. I rarely give up on books, but it doesn't say much about the quality of the writing when I'd rather stand in line somewhere and stare at the wall than stand in line and read a few pages of a book.

I'd love to see this as a long form article somewhere, but there just wasn't enough discrete content for a full length book. ( )

This was a very interesting read. I learned things I can apply to better understand myself and others. ( )

Over 100,000 years ago, our ancestors began talking. About 5,000 years ago, humans started writing. In the last 150 years, we adopted everything from the telegraph, radio, and television to e-mail, text messages, blogs, and other social media. The ways we connect with one another may have changed but we still are compelled to communicate our ideas, experiences, and emotions to those around us.
