"Chalk up a win for Team IABC. Editor Tamara Gillis has assembled a winning lineup of the best communicators to compile this useful, readable Handbook. Not another how-to-do-it tactical manual, this volume draws from theory and global best practices to explain the strategic reasons behind modern communication. A must-read for anyone interested in understanding the communication profession and a useful desktop companion to the professional communicator's dictionary and style guide."—William Briggs, IABC Fellow and director, School of Journalism and Mass Communications, San Jose State University

"It is a real pleasure to read this latest version. It presents a sound, research-based foundation on communication—its importance to organizations, why the function must be strategic, and what it takes to get it right."—John G. Clemons, ABC, APR, corporate director of community relations, Raytheon

"All myths about organizational communicators being brainwashed, biased corporate journalists are out the window. This stellar compendium from dozens of authors, researchers, and editors of high professional stature is timely and forward-thinking. Communication students particularly will benefit from understanding the complex disciplines that intertwine and drive effective organizational communication."—Barbara W. Puffer, ABC, president, Puffer Public Relations Strategies, and associate professor and course chair, Communications Studies and Professional Writing, University of Maryland University College
