I’m a teacher at heart
Accord, NY (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Joseph A. DeVito, professor emeritus of communication, offers readers his new book “50 Communication Strategies” (published by iUniverse), a collection of strategies designed to help them achieve a wide variety of goals in life, labor and love.
“I’m a teacher at heart,” writes DeVito, “and this book is simply an extension of my teaching.” From advice – both giving and receiving – to workplace communication, “50 Communication Strategies” provides readers with an arsenal of practical skills and tools for making their communication more successful in personal relationships, in work environments and in the written word – both face-to-face and online.
An excerpt from “50 Communication Strategies”:
“This book is purposely brief, despite its 50 chapters. In contrast to the literature on which this material is based, this book is very, very brief. The theoretical and research literature from which this material is derived is voluminous. The college textbooks I’ve written on human communication, interpersonal communication, nonverbal communication, interviewing, and public speaking, which cover only a small part of the communication literature, often run to five hundred pages. The book you’re holding is a distillation of this material into a form that focuses on the strategies you can use to communicate more effectively.”
DeVito’s skills, education and experience make him certain that “50 Communication Strategies” will make readers more effective communicators, regardless of their current skill level.
