Publisher's Summary

Death. Sex. Money. Tricky subjects we’re taught to avoid in polite conversation. But if they’re so unpleasant, why do so many people tune in regularly to hear Anna Sale asking perfect strangers about them? What if, rather than declaring them off-limits, we could all benefit from discussing them more?

In Let’s Talk About Hard Things, Sale - the host of cult podcast Death, Sex & Money, which tackles life’s hard questions - takes her quest for more honest communication into her own life. She considers her history of facing (and sometimes avoiding) difficult subjects, both personal and cultural; she reflects on race, wealth, inequality, love, grief, death, power - all the things that shape our daily lives, the things we should be talking about, but often struggle to. She tracks down people whose stories best illuminate the transformative power of tough conversations, and offers, with her trademark empathy and insight, different ways of approaching these tricky topics with family, friends, loved ones and strangers alike.

Part treatise, part how-to and part memoir, Let’s Talk About Hard Things is candid, unflinching and entertaining in its quest to make everyone more comfortable with the uncomfortable realities of life.

Best interviewer of her generation.

Anna Sale is a genius interviewer. She’s clever, thoughtful, listens, learns and even makes us laugh. She opens space for stories to speak. She is consistently interesting and her writing is a joy. I love her podcast and now I love her book. Anna Sale is the gold standard in modern interviewing.

Articulate piece

a great start to get talking about the hard things is acknowledge that it's hard to talk about. Loved it and will listen to it again!
