The Institute of General Semantics is pleased to announce that one of its most popular books -- People in Quandaries: The Semantics of Personal Adjustment, by Wendell Johnson -- is back in print!

The book is now available in a softcover version, as well as a PDF download from the IGS Store.

About the Book

People in Quandaries deals with the "mechanics" of disappointments, frustrations, and other sources of unhappiness.

It carefully examines how linguistic misevaluations produce our feelings of inadequacy and failure; how our verbal habits can result in false "pictures" of ourselves and our environment; how our unreliable linguistic maps keep us in quandaries.

The book then demonstrates how to recognize and change unrealistic ideals and aspirations; how to improve our ability to cope with the circumstances of an increasingly unpredictable world.

An ideal gift to introduce friends to general semantics!
