This book is great at being geared towards the new principles of leadership communication, in this Information Age. The author does a great job of incorporating how emails, text messages, virtual forms of communication, etc. . . are now entwined with the professional world. This book is an easy read, and a good place to start for any student or professional looking for skills and principles to communicate in today's educational and professional environments. Whether a Freshman or Graduate student, or a C.E.O. or entry-level worker, this book will improve anyone's communication skills and understanding of today's communication needs.

If you want to learn technical writing, speeches, presentations, this is the only book you will need. I still use it as a reference to check my work.

The content of the book is good. I think I could learn a lot from it if I could get it downloaded onto my devices. It will not download onto my android or iPhone at all. I have to keep removing and downloading it to my laptops. It is ridiculous! I have never had this much trouble with any of the other books I have bought
If I would have known, I would have just bought the text book.

i had to buy this for a graduate class...wow, I can't believe anyone would consider reading this other than while waiting for the reaper to descend upon them and fill their life with a darkness as black as death.

Unlike some texts, this book is easy to read and has useful information. There is less theory and more practice information that can be applied immediately.
