Consequently, the authors give the readers a more thorough grounding than occurs in most textbooks. The book is well written: clear and pacy. It is also impressively erudite, with up-to-date references that do not in any way overburden the text. A most welcome contribution! This book clearly explains that the way one communicates is not innate, but can be learnt.

Covering topics such as non-verbal behaviour, listening, negotiation and persuasion, the book situates communication in a range of different contexts, from interacting in groups to the counselling interview. Based on the core tenet that interpersonal communication can be conceptualised as a form of skilled activity, and including new chapters on cognitive behavioural therapy and coaching and mentoring, this new edition also places communication in context with advances in digital technology.
