Learn to "hear" hidden bias from an irresistible cast of woodland creatures! Our culture wars are rife with loaded language. But listen closely or you'll miss what Ali Almossawi finds frightening: words that erase accountability, history, even identity through what they leave unsaid.

Fans of Almossawi's An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments couldn't ask for a better primer on ways words can trick us.
