Continuing with our staff's #PinchRecs, Addie has been in love with @AmandaMontell's 'Cultish'! From infamous cults such as Jonestown to multilevel marketing, Montell shows how cults are created and sustained through their "us vs. them" language in this riveting book.

It was SO fun to welcome @AmandaMontell to Des Moines for AVID! I love the book & her podcast @soundslikeacult and how she engages us in considering the relationship between language and power. #cultish #linguistics @dmpl

“Putting your physical fitness in the hands of spinning instructors feels like less of a risk than putting your spiritual, psychological and emotional health in the hands of someone trying to build and scale a giant business,” @AmandaMontell said. nytimes.com/2022/05/07/style…

Yo, @AmandaMontell was dropping vocab words all over this episode. It was a delight.
Have you ever heard the word “conspirituality”? Us either. Good news, you can learn all about it and more on this week’s episode of The Stacks with author and linguist @AmandaMontell. pod.link/1362164483/episode/…
