Alan Alda: “If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?”

After a lifetime of depicting stories and emotions as an actor and director, Alan Alda wanted to delve even deeper into the subject of human communication. His search took him to scientific laboratories, theatrical rehearsal rooms, and college classrooms—and led to surprising revelations about the way we relate to each other. With his trademark humor and candor, Alda shares what he’s learned about communicating clearly in an ever changing world and across generational and social divides.
