About the Author:

Having served on the faculty ofseveral universities for decades, Professor Eisenberg's academic persona wasbest captured by one book reviewer: "Eisenberg is not dull." Eisenberg stronglycontends that what makes a textbook readable and comprehensible to students ismore a matter of¿writing style than¿ actualcontent. Professor Eisenberg¿ sees himself as a teacher who writes,rather than a writer who teaches.¿¿ Atthe heart of his teaching philosophy is the axiom: "Students are lamps to belit, not vessels to be filled."¿ In thiswork,¿ he¿ successfully makes¿ a¿smooth transition from¿ theory topractice and, by so doing,¿ fulfills theprophecy that ideas do have consequences.Likening communication to¿ spokes on awheel,¿ the professor¿ seeks to gently rotate the reader's mind fromspoke to spoke and make the anatomy of communication a dynamic and meaningfulinterpersonal and intercultural tool.Lastly, the author¿ insists that knowing and doing speaktwo different languages; knowing the alphabet doesn't mean that¿ people can spell, nor does having amillion-word vocabulary mean that they can¿write an essay. Hence, the author offers¿ up the contents of¿ this book as a toolbox containing the meanswith which to¿ bridge the communicationgap that persistently threatens¿ thequality of life on this¿ planet.
