It deals with spoken and written communication, with presentations and meetings, and with the use of modern IT systems. There are questions to help you use the book effectively and to construct an action plan for further reading.

Effective communication is a skill: we can all do better if we try. This book will help you to improve, thus bridging some of the common barriers in business.
