Visual communication is just as important as verbal communication, if not more so. VISUAL COMMUNICATION: IMAGES WITH MESSAGES, 5E, shows you how visual perception is used in all forms of communication, whether it's graphic design, photography, television, video, or interactive media. Packed with study and review tools, this communications textbook will not only clearly explain the theories you need to know, but also help you prepare for tests and succeed in class.

1.0 out of 5 stars very rudimentary September 16, 2011
Format:Paperback
As another reviewer elaborated, this textbook is shallow at best; it has very little depth. If you're looking to conduct research or if you're in a graduate level class, this book is not for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Message is Sad August 27, 2010
Format:Paperback
Paul Martin Lester's Visual Communication is an expensive sad publication designed for the academic community who has no idea what the rest of the United States citizens are seeing.
A major fault I was the absence of female photographers especially from the era of the 1930s when the rest of the world had the outstanding work of Dorthea Lange and Margaret Burke-White from which to understand the devestation of that period of time.
Normally I read an entire book before I write a review for this one I did not. I read the first ten chapters and skimmed the rest then dropped the course for which it was used as a text.
