If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?:My Adventures in the Art and Science of Relating and Communicating

Alan Alda

When beloved Emmy Award-winning actor Alan Alda (Things I Overhead While Talking to Myself, 2007) first began hosting the PBS series Scientific American Frontiers in 1993, he had no idea how much the job would change his life. As he interviewed scientists and engineers, Alda became painfully aware of his own shortcomings as a communicator and how his background as an actor could help him improve. In his new book, Alda uses his trademark humor and frankness to share fascinating stories from the science of communication, as well as the techniques he developed to help us relate better with others.
