How to Avoid Making a Fool of Yourself: An Introduction to General Semantics by Wayne Pace is a very timely book. Published at the beginning of 2017--the year after Oxford Dictionaries chose -Post-Truth- as the word of the year--it provides a good starting point for the understanding of language, its connection to concepts of truth, and its effects on behavior.

With the questions--What, Why, When, How, Where and Who--as organizing principle, the book covers all of the major concepts of General Semantics and, through multiple examples, makes clear how these are practical tools for distinguishing between different kinds of statements, and for avoiding maladjustment, aggressive or immature tendencies.

This is a very useful book for anyone trying to navigate the complex semantic environment of our time, for students of general semantics and communication and indeed, for people looking to avoid making fools of themselves.
--Eva Berger

Author of The Communication Panacea: Pediatric and General Semantics

This book furnishes a most practical guide for problem-solving, decision-making, interpersonal relations, self-management, and personal fulfillment. It brings the philosophy of general semantics to the challenges of everyday living and demonstrates that through its use one can live more productively and sanely. Our culture needs this book. Highly recommended.
--Martin H. Levinson, President, Institute of General Semantics

Review Text

  • By T. Carling on March 21, 2018

    This book requires editing and proofreading before it qualifies as well-adjusted language behavior.

  • By yarg on October 9, 2017

    A fresh and thought provoking book on applied general semantics. A great guide book for learning to live sane in an insane world. New reflections about old principles espoused by Alfred Korzibski who hopefully will be rediscovered by those in new generation facing unique trials and tribulations that jeopardize our sanity and survival

  • By A satisfied customer on November 22, 2017

    This book brings the philosophy of general semantics to the challenges of everyday living and demonstrates that through its use one can live more productively and sanely. It provides valuable guidance in a "post-truth" world filled with "alternative facts" and "fake news." Highly recommended.
