Anna Sale and her podcast guests "have direct and thought-provoking conversations, discussing topics that most of us are too squeamish, polite, or nervous to bring up. But Sale argues that we all experience these hard things, and by not talking to one another, we cut ourselves off, leading us to feel isolated and disconnected from the people who can help us most. In [this book], Sale uses the best of what she's learned from her podcast to reveal that when we have the courage to talk about hard things, we learn about ourselves, others, and the world that we make together. Diving into five of the most fraught conversation topics, ... she moves between memoir, ... snapshots of a variety of Americans opening up about their lives, and expert opinions to show why having tough conversations is important and how to do them in a thoughtful and generous way"--Publisher marketing.

Fear. Avoidance. Division. The safest path can feel like the one without dialogue regarding conversations about equity and diversity. What if you offend the other person.
By Steve Herman
"Having a pet dragon is so much fun. He can sit, roll over, and play ... He can candle a birthday cake, lit a campfire, or so many other cool things ... But what if your dragon is always afraid of doing Hard Things? What if he gives up easily on anything that's hard? What if he ALWAYS says Yes to everything just because it's easy to do so? What if he's afraid to stand up for his friend just because it's easier to stay quiet? What if he can't preserve through anything that's difficult? What should you do? You train him to do Hard Things!"--Amazon.com
From the host of the popular WNYC podcast Death, Sex, & Money , Let's Talk About Hard Things is "like a good conversation with a friend" ( The New Yorker ) where "no topic is off-limits when it comes to creating meaningful connection" (Lori Gottlieb, author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone ). Anna Sale wants you to have that conversation.
