?This text is a treasure trove for use in and out of the classroom."

"This book is one of the few which is a 'must read' in the field of management communication. Phil Clampitt combines a deep understanding of the research with an unparalleled sensitivity to the needs of practitioners. He has produced a text which is stimulating, fun to read and which transforms the way in which we think about communication in organisations. Wise executives will study its pages in order to steal ideas about best practice from one of the best in the business. The winners will be the organisations they work for. The losers will be the competition."
