You’re the Only One I Can Tell: Inside the Language of Women’s Friendships

We rated this book:


For years it was well-understood that women shared a special bond that men didn’t. At last, best-selling author Deborah Tannen unlocks the secrets of it all in her amazing new book, You’re the Only One I Can Tell. She brilliantly nails down what’s inside the language of women’s friendships.

Tannen explains the difference between the commonalities and differences between women. For the first time, the reader, male or female, gets more than a glimpse of what competition really means among those of the same sex. In addition, Tannen draws some parallels between the sexes in an effort to broaden her perspectives.

In well-written prose, the author delights the reader with incredible insight into the significance of female bonding. Tannen tends to classify situational relationships so as to point out the differences between men and women in addition to the bonds that join the sexes. Competition, Tannen implies, can be both the bond as well as an Achilles heel among women. This summer, set your romance novels aside and tune into Deborah Tannen’s new book. If you want the inside scoop, read You’re the Only One I Can Tell.
