Review:

Review for the first edition:
"Harris...does a good job in summarizing the field and its literature."
―PR Update

Review for the first edition:
"The author astutely blends research from academic journal articles and monographs with the admonishments of how-to books, articles from trade magazines, and stories from the daily newspapers, so that we lose the sense of priority among the sources. This creative integration of academic research reports what the popular press contributes to our organizational behavioral knowledge base."
―Contemporary Psychology

"Thomas E. Harris, in Applied Organizational Communication: Principles and Pragmatics for Future Practice, 2nd ed., earnestly addresses this question by describing organizational communication as a diverse cultural process that is subject to change. He offers what appears to be an upper level undergraduate textbook that is wide-ranging, concrete...Harris accomplishes what he sets out to do. Students, scholars, and practitioners can tap into his resourceful text to begin their immersion into the realm of organizational communication study."
―American Communication Journal
