Praise forFundamentals of Organizational Communication

“The information presented in this book is timely, appropriate, and highlights the core ideas of organizational communication. In short, the Shockley-Zalabak book does a fantastic job of addressing the objectives of my course, more so than any other organizational communication text I’ve reviewed.”

–Adam Earnheardt, Youngstown State University

 

“So many organizational communication text books focus extensively on the theoretical aspects of the subject matter. This text provides students with clear examples and information about the applicability of the subject matter and demonstrates how the content of the course may have direct relevance to their future careers.”

–Christine L. North, Ohio Northern University
