EXPLORING THE COMMUNICATION DYNAMIC

Paula Downey and David Youell, Oak Tree Press £9.95

A quirky and thought-provoking collection of soundbites, apercus and pseudo-wisdom, this little book is worth dipping into for helpful insights.**

SAY IT STRAIGHT OR YOU'LL SHOW IT CROOKED

Abe Wagner, The Industrial Society £12.95

Abe's urge to communicate is so strong he feels moved to italicise regularly to let us know when he's making a joke. His principles are good, but they are over-egged and over-elaborated. Communicator, heal thyself.*

THE ART OF PERSUASIVE COMMUNICATION

Richard Storey, Gower £29.50

For readers who want more than snappy phrases, Storey's book provides a rigorous analysis of the disciplines of communication. Intelligent and thorough, he breaks down communication into interesting sub-sections.**
