Sharing the Journey: Lessons from my Students and Clients with Tangled Tongues
A rollicking, often poignant look at the author's journey through life, as a severe stutterer in his youth and during a long career as a university professor, author and therapist. Includes 10 maxims or guidelines for good living, illustrated from Emerick's experiences as one with a 'tangled tongue', with the Alice-in-Wonderland world of academic life, and with the world of nature. The author uses humor and real experiences to show recovery from stuttering and university teaching! Sample maxims: "Don't Pole Vault over Mouse Turds"; "Let the Craziness Emerge" and "Law of the Echo."
