About the Author:

Peter Bennett is Chief Examiner for GCE Communication and Culture, Senior Lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Wolverhampton, co-editor of Communication Studies: The Essential Resource (2003) and co-author of Framework Media: Channels (2003) and A2 Media Studies: The Essential Introduction (2005)

Review:

'The use of direct address, rhetorical questions and a chatty conversational tone, with lots of concrete, everyday examples will involve students in a way that more conventional Communication studies textbooks do not ... Your students will enjoy this more up-to-date approach.' – www.communicationandculture.co.uk
