Summary "In 'people work', success often depends on how effectively we are able to communicate, while serious problems can be seen to arise from communication breakdowns. Developing our knowledge and skills in relation to communication and language is therefore an important goal to pursue. With its strong practice focus, its emphasis on reflection and its suggestions for further reading, this book can play an important part in that pursuit."--BOOK JACKET
