Assuming a unique perspective for an organizational communication text, this “handbook” focuses the reader on how to communicate with managers and peers to survive, thrive and prosper in organizational environments. Taking a “subordinate” approach, this “survival guide for employees” centers on understanding how and why managers communicate the ways they do and how employees can adapt their own communication skills to be more effective in the organizational environment. In fifteen straightforward chapters, this book provides clear and concise guidelines, along with a foundation of theory and scholarship, to help readers become more effective communicators in today's workforce.

There are a couple of outstanding basic organizational communication textbooks available, but this one seems to be the favorite of students.
This book has a brief, concrete, and accessible approach. The text offers solid, research-based content, but is written in a reader-friendly style. The work could be titled "Advice your mentor wants you to know." or "How we wish everyone in organizations would communicate."
This book is 200 pages of interesting, quality, useful information. Of course Richmond and McCroskey have been giving us excellent work for years, and this book is no exception.
The easy-going approach makes the book appropriate for the general public and college students.
Worth every penny.
Excellent book that one can use at work. Having the writer as the instructor was even nicer!
