Editorial Reviews

With this 13th edition, Lehman (management, Mississippi State U.) and Dufrene (business, Stephen F. Austin State U.) update the classic textbook originally published 40 years ago with an emphasis on legal and ethical constraints, diversity, changing technology, and a team- oriented approach. Some of the basic communication techniques covered include organizing, composing, revising, and proofreading messages. Specific types of messages, such as routine messages, memos, electronic communication, bad-news, and persuasive messages are described in separate chapters. Coverage extends to reports, business presentations, resumes, application letters, and employment interviews. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
