Review:

“Motivating, captivating, and everything you can think of in an excellent book from cover to cover.”

        - Desire Baloubi, Shaw University

 

“The chapter on the Ethnography of Communication is especially strong and lays the foundations for the rest of the book. I would not cut a thing from this book. The existing chapters are excellent .”
