Praise for Public Relations: A Values-Driven Approach

The material is fresh, easy to understand, current, and covers the most appropriate areas of Public Relations for a semester-long course.

Its prescriptions for writing are very good, and the text provides the best discussion of planning processes of any of the introductory books.
Michael Smilowitz, James Madison University
