The de-voicing of society : why we don't talk to each other anymore by John L Locke( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Information Age has arrived - but not in person. Technology is overwhelming us with information, much of it unwanted, driving out the sound of human voices. We now spend our days exchanging factoids, often in print, leaving us little time to "just talk." But it's ordinary social talking, including gossip and small talk, that keeps us together. If we lose these intimate forms of self-expression, says John Locke, we lose more than we realize. The tradition of communities gathering to publicly discuss and debate important issues seems to be giving way to isolated individuals communicating electronically from the privacy of their homes. In every aspect of our lives, vocal intimacy is on the wane. To compensate, we turn on TV and radio talk shows to hear other people talk. Talking has become America's leading spectator sport. The De-Voicing of Society is a provocative look at the world we live in. Thought-provoking and troubling in its implications, it will leave readers wanting to ring the neighbors' doorbell and invite them over for dinner
Duels and duets : why men and women talk so differently by John L Locke( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do men and women talk so differently? And how do these differences interfere with communication between the sexes? In search of an answer to these and other questions, John Locke takes the reader on a fascinating journey, from human evolution through ancient history to the present, revealing why men speak as they do when attempting to impress or seduce women, and why women adopt a very different way of talking when bonding with each other, or discussing rivals. When men talk to men, Locke argues, they frequently engage in a type of 'dueling', locking verbal horns with their rivals in a way that enables them to compete for the things they need, mainly status and sex. By contrast, much of women's talk sounds more like a verbal 'duet', a harmonious way of achieving their goals by sharing intimate thoughts and feelings in private"--
