Review:

“The KEYS process is clear and very appropriate. The use of this text will be a great shift from business writing to include a more humanistic and personal approach to the area of business communication.” (William W. Kenner 2010-10-01)

“The most impressive aspect of the book is the way the organization reflects the sequence of experiences the typical college graduate is likely to experience when entering the workforce: transition from school to work, from entry level jobs to more responsibility, from team member to leader, and even how to achieve a work-life balance.” (Randy Duncan 2010-10-01)

The writing style is very accessible. The chapter on technology makes this book different from the ones I’ve used, and the chapter on work-life balance is compelling, interesting, and important.” (Michele S. Foss-Snowden 2010-10-01)

“This book is a breath of fresh air in the marketplace. The concepts covered are excellent, the writing is user-friendly, and the student and instructor can find a common enjoyment of the overall presentation.” (Leonard M. Edwards 2010-10-01)

“The main advantage [of Quintanilla/Wahl] is the accessibility of the writing and the use of humor. I think it caters more to the student than other texts. There were parts I really enjoyed reading and I think students will too. Chapter 10: Balancing Work and Life through Communication is an important chapter and one that should resonate with the Millennial generation.” (Kristina D. Drumheller 2010-10-01)

“The book is written at a student’s level, not for a group of scholars discussing communication skills. … The advantages of the book are the readability, the wide range of subject areas included, and the case studies. The case studies are some of the best I have seen.” (Dale Davis 2010-10-01)

The KEYS feature will help students apply their learning, and the Keys in Action exercises are extremely helpful. The conversational, coaching tone of the text is excellent: in many sections, students are given advice with explanations of how the advice will help them succeed in the workplace. I am impressed with the readability of the text and its relevance to students’ workplace communication needs.”
