Sticks and Stones by Terry Lindsey Book Resume:
There is an old English children’s rhyme first published in 1830 simply stated as, “sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” In the future, our society has evolved to the point where words are considered harmful. Therefore, words are eliminated from a thought-controlled society of the future. Welcome to the Machine! Can one couple change the course of history and lead all into a joyful ending? This book is written to challenge us all on the path we are heading. The fear is real, but are we going along under the assumption that words actually do hurt us, so let’s get rid of this form of communication? Can we live in peace and harmony without the word? Really?
Sticks and Stones by Beth Goobie Book Resume:
Jujube is thrilled when Brent asks her out. She is not so happy when the rumors start flying at school. Pretty soon her name is showing up on bathroom walls and everyone is snickering and sniping. When her mother gets involved, Jujube’s reputation takes another hit. Deciding that someone has to take a stand, Jujube gathers all the other girls who are labeled sluts, and worse, and tries to impress on her fellow students the damage that can be done by assigning a label that reduces a person to an object.
Sticks and Stones by Jerome Neu Book Resume:
"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me." This schoolyard rhyme projects an invulnerability to verbal insults that sounds good but rings false. Indeed, the need for such a verse belies its own claims. For most of us, feeling insulted is a distressing-and distressingly common-experience. In Sticks and Stones, philosopher Jerome Neu probes the nature, purpose, and effects of insults, exploring how and why they humiliate, embarrass, infuriate, and wound us so deeply. What kind of injury is an insult? Is it determined by the insulter or the insulted? What does it reveal about the character of both parties as well as the character of society and its conventions? What role does insult play in social and legal life? When is telling the truth an insult? Neu draws upon a wealth of examples and anecdotes-as well as a range of views from Aristotle and Oliver Wendell Holmes to Oscar Wilde, John Wayne, Katherine Hepburn, and many others-to provide surprising answers to these questions. He shows that what we find insulting can reveal much about our ideas of character, honor, gender, the nature of speech acts, and social and legal conventions. He considers how insults, both intentional and unintentional, make themselves felt-in play, Freudian slips, insult humor, rituals, blasphemy, libel, slander, and hate speech. And he investigates the insult's extraordinary power, why it can so quickly destabilize our sense of self and threaten our moral identity, the very center of our self-respect and self-esteem. Entertaining, humorous, and deeply insightful, Sticks and Stones unpacks the fascinating dynamics of a phenomenon more often painfully experienced than clearly understood.

Sticks & Stones by Abby Cooper Book Resume:
Ever since she was a baby, the words people use to describe Elyse have instantly appeared on her arms and legs. At first it was just "cute" and "adorable," but as she's gotten older and kids have gotten meaner, words like "loser" and "pathetic" appear, and those words bubble up and itch. And then there are words like "interesting," which she's not really sure how to feel about. Now, at age twelve, she's starting middle school, and just when her friends who used to accept and protect her are drifting away, she receives an anonymous note saying "I know who you are, and I know what you're dealing with. I want to help." As Elyse works to solve the mystery of who is sending her these notes, she also finds new ways to accept who she is and to become her best self.

Sticks and Stones by Jeff Abrams Book Resume:
It wasn’t true what was said about me—not even close. But people believed it and passed it on. My life was awful. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep. I took showers so I could cry without disturbing my family. Finally, my attackers ran out of rocks—or they moved on to somebody else. Either way, things got better. A friend told me that if I lived my life according to God’s Will, most people would eventually see that the gossip was false. He was right. Today my life is better than ever. My faith in God and others is strong. I’ve forgiven those who lied about me—and those who listened. At least I hope I have. I’ve also learned to be a lot more careful about what I say about others and about what I allow others to say to me. As this book points out, people are fragile. Reading “Sticks and Stones” has helped me. If you have a story similar to mine, I hope and pray it will help you. ~ Anonymous

Sticks and Stones by Sandra Moffatt Book Resume:
A powerful book that places pain in its proper context through using God's word as a foundation for understanding. The author bravely shares that she is a victim of sexual abuse, making a very big sacrifice in order to bless the reader with the message of healing. The straightforward opening will resonate with anyone who has experienced deep pain and wants to be free. The author has been so direct with her own experience that the reader is immediately aware that the content comes from a person who understands firsthand what he or she is suffering. The level of validity and credibility could not be higher. The author credits God for every phase of healing and her strengthened abilities in dealing with the past. While aptly acknowledging the readers experiences and feelings as victims, the author does not leave them unaccountable in the holy standard of practicing forgiveness. This healthy balance sets the book apart from most worldly approaches to therapy and healing. The concepts regarding pain in this book are very original and imperative in a book with this subject matter. It demonstrates the author has gained much wisdom, which is a sign that validates her growth. To God be the glory. Great things He has done!
