Great stuff. Science of language and people. Not conveyed in the usual "less is more" way. Some things in life cannot be conveyed as easily, nor should they.

A fascinating topic drowned in monotonous speech...

I think this whole thing could have been about 30 minutes long.

An excellent program that highlights the subtleties, reasoning, and motivations behind the way we say things. As soon as he mentioned that scene in Fargo where Steve Bucemi's character tries to bribe the officer, with a $50 bill sticking out, I got what Pinker was trying to point out. "Indirect Speech"
