Of course these lists are not required reading, just a few suggestions to get you started on a road to more effective communication.  It can help you with your job, your business, your personal relationships. Most important to me, it can help get a good candidate elected to office.

Enjoy.

 This is only a few of the articles available online, but I hope it will help you locate additional material if you wish to do so.

Understanding cognitive distortions; learning recognize & construct accuracy in thinking, help us in many facets of life. It can help you become a more effective, more efficient debater.

Let me know if you need my help with any of this.
