About the first edition

"What attracts me ... is that as well as dealing with communication skills, it also covers the organisational dimension, aspectsof advertising and public relations and new technology. The content is challenging but it is written in an appropriate style to maintain the interest of students."

Clive Cochrane, Queen's University Belfast

 

About the second edition

"An impressive revision that reflects a strong focus on integrating relevant and up-to-date issues with the study of business communication. I particularly enjoyed the new cases, the critique of outdated intercultural theory and the thought-provoking questions."

Judith M. Torvik, Telemark University College, Norway
