Lori Palatnik and Bob Burg have strong things to say about the subject of gossip. And they have Biblical references to back them up. Their goal? To extinguish the fire of evil speech and help us live in a gossip-free environment that will result in positive interactions with the people around us and healthier relationships including the one with ourselves. Gossip: Ten Pathways to Eliminate It From Your Life and Transform Your Soul combines the substance of Old Testament references with conversational text, often anecdotal in tone, and helpful to any of us looking to clean up our verbal exchanges and eventually train our minds to avoid the temptation of gossip. The book also helps us recognize that the implications of gossip are more serious than we might have thought.
