Please don't put limiting or interpretative qualifiers behind "YES" and "NO" without adding "NONE OF THE ABOVE" There's not much about basic "YES" and "NO" that most of us don't understand. Qualifiers create gaps in the YES/NO universe.

This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
