About the book
What is effective communication and how can it be put into practice in business? Business Communication: Achieving Results answers this question by first examining contributions of major theorists and thinkers in the subjects of semantics, linguistics and organizational communication and how the lessons learned can be applied to business for optimal results. Actionable recommendations provide the reader with successful approaches to interpersonal and group scenarios. The book also explores tactics the reader can utilize in common internal and external communication efforts in business.
The author begins with a historical perspective on human communication and creates an up-to-date model for our times. She explores the contributions of major theorists and thinkers in the subjects of semantics, language and linguistics and describes how the lessons learned help us achieve results. Moore devotes the rest of the book to applied, actionable recommendations designed to optimize positive internal and external communication outcomes in business.

CF Davis ★★★★★
Business Communication covers the concepts and research-proven principles of communicating in a clear and concise manner. The author has done a commendable job of providing practical applications, examples and checklists. This book puts decades of research into a context that managers can use without dumbing down to trite slogans. Business Communication is for managers who want to understand what works in communicating, rather than a simple list of do's and don'ts.
