Review:

The students find the text easy to read and the chapters are relevant to the field of organizational communication. I enjoy the organization of the text, and find it an easy text to teach from, and believe the explanations of points are organized well, allowing students to understand concepts without too much explanation.

It is very readable. It uses lots of examples that relate to the information being covered. It is not too heavy with the theory. The writing is not too heavy with scholarly talk and academ-ese. Most of the chapters attempt to cover good topics for a course in org com.

The book was very clear and easy to follow. I especially like the Case for Analysis pieces because they gave examples of the lesson. By reading them, it was easier to understand the point of each chapter.

The main strength of the text was practical examples of the sometimes abstract concepts. I found the text to be straightforward and informative. I wouldn’t change a thing. My good grades so far as a testament to it.

The writing was easy to understand. Chapters were concise and to the point. Each topic was covered thoroughly.
