Summary
  • "The subject is written and verbal communication"--
  • Communication is a subject that fascinates and frustrates people. It varies by context, audience, purpose, and form. From speeches to body language and from legalese and technical writing to how the Internet changed everything, this informative book brings the intricacies of speaking, writing, listening, and reading into focus through its well-researched answers to nearly 800 common communication questions, such as What are some common barriers to communication? How did early radio affect American politics? What was Aristotle's influence on rhetoric? How should I deal with a social media troll? How can I stop saying things like "um" and "ah"? How can I project authority without being overbearing? How can I better communicate up the corporate ladder? What clichés and common gaffes are easily avoided? Why are Ikea instructions an example of genius?
