Review:

"These shorter, more informal discussions of the implications of certain metaphors and analogies for communication theory will be very useful for stimulating critical thinking and generating interesting classroom discussions."

--Bradford "J" Hall, University of New Mexico--Bradford "J" Hall

"This book provides incomparably unique and original perspectives explained by core scholars in their fields."--Do Kyun Kim, Ph.D. (08/21/2008)

"Communication as... is an excellent way to introduce students to various perspectives in the discipline. It makes the point that there is no right or wrong way to study communication but that the different perspectives are all legitimate and useful."

--Sonja K. Foss, University of Colorado at Denver
