From the Author:

Why this book is so useful
A lot of people have commented to me on the usefulenss of this book! I am certainly delighted to have to opportunity to write and share my ideas with others. I especially wanted to keep the concepts as simple as possible for the novice and the "pro"alike. The industry is rampant with three letter acronyms (TLA) and I wanted to be sure that everyone had a chance to know just what we are talking about. After all, this is about communications, isn't it? Both Don and I have put a lot of time into writing this revised book which has jumped to over 900 pages. Sorry for the volume, but this is one of the most fascinating and fast paced industries today. So, we tried to keep it as simple as before and add some new ideas about the hot buttons that you face every day. Please feel free to let us know what you think about it, and anything that is not as clear as we intended. Best wishes and happy holidays!
