I read Ways with Words many years ago and I had not realized Dr. Brice Heath had followed the children of Tracton and Roadville longitudinaly. Although this work did not have the impact on me that Ways with Words had, I still recommend it.

Shirley Brice Heath compassionately and empathetically shares insights about how language use, opportunities, hard work, and luck shape the lives of many families over three generations. She includes tragedy and triumphs along the way. Excellent book!
