How does grammar affect your well-being? That’s the question Lawrence Weinstein will be addressing here at Transitions Bookplace when he talks about his new book, Grammar for the Soul. Weinstein takes an altogether new angle on the hundreds of grammatical decisions each of us makes daily without thinking: he describes how those decisions affect us, the people who make them. “Grammar,” says Weinstein “turns out to have uses beyond clear communication. Managed wisely, it can accelerate personal growth.” Join us and discover surprising connections between elements of grammar and human attributes that most of us would like to possess – connections, for example, between use of the “double-barreled” punctuation mark, the colon, and assertiveness, between use of passive constructions like “my hand is guided” and creativity, between us of the first-person pronoun (“I”) and heightened awareness.
