This book met my expectations, the reading is easy not many pages for
each chapter. I use it in my Speech class and it goes right along
with what my teacher uses, the same definition and structure.

The book goes in depth to the root of communication and how others utilize it. The author does a great job of writing the book in a way that almost feels like you are communicating with her about all the topics.
