I'll Get Back to You

The Dyscommunication Crisis: Why Unreturned Messages Drive Us Crazy and What to Do About It

“Why didn’t you return my message?”

I’ll Get Back to You explains why we get upset over unreturned messages and offers concrete solutions so you can change this.


I’ll Get Back to You exposes one of life’s dirty secrets hiding in plain sight. Unreturned messages drive us nuts and send our heads spinning. It’s too painful and crazy to even talk about. The problem is pervasive due to the nature of digital communication.

Fading are the days of direct communication by phone or in person, which have immediate responses and clarifications. The immediate feedback loop has been replaced by “broken loops” of communication. Now, due to hundreds of emails and texts, endless waiting, perpetual unreturned messages, and unlimited misunderstanding, we are in a Dyscommunication Crisis.

This gives rise to the “Dyscommunication Syndrome”—a cluster of symptoms that comes together and repeats when our message is not returned, including anxiety, worst-case scenarios, catastrophizing, and negative loops of thinking. Sam George can help you learn how to stop this.

I’ll Get Back to You explains the science behind the Dyscommunication Syndrome. It includes captivating, real life stories about dating, relationships, family, and work—so you can relate it to your own life.

With concrete advice, I’ll Get Back to You provides:

• Tested tactics, so your messages are promptly returned.
• Solutions for when your message is not returned.
• Exercises and tips for self-improvement.
• Quick and easy techniques to calm your mind.

If you are sick of unreturned messages, this book has the answers. You will never hear the words “I’ll get back to you” again.

Sam George is a master at two things: discerning trends before they are recognized as trends and communicating these ideas to the public at large.

He is the co-author of The Great Divide: Retro vs. Metro America, the first book to name and bring awareness of the cultural rift in America, which has become a war. The Great Divide received national press coverage, including reviews in the New York Times, Newsweek, the Los Angeles Times, and a presentation to National Press Club that was covered by C-SPAN.

In 1995, Sam was hired to put together the strategy to legalize marijuana. The program was in part funded by George Soros. Sam’s focus groups and polls showed that the only way to “legalize” marijuana was to “medicalize” it first. Another funder, John Sperling, Founder of University of Phoenix, described it as a “genius” idea. It worked. A total of thirty-three states have approved medical marijuana and ten states have legalized marijuana.

Sam now splits his time between writing and digital communication. He specializes in advocacy, marketing, and fundraising for nonprofits and corporations. He also leads an entirely online yoga company, YMEDICA, which educates yoga teachers on medical yoga.
