The Art of Communication
Improving Your Fundamental Communication Skills
This third edition of The Art of Communication (previously titled Creating Communication) is a brief and practical introduction to speech communication. Emphasizing face-to-face communication, yet also addressing the role of technology and its influence on daily communication, Fujishin helps you develop greater understanding of how important communication skills are in your personal and professional life-and will inspire you to use these skills in ways that enlarge and improve the lives of others as well as your own.
Fujishin employs a distinctively encouraging and conversational approach as he explains the basic communication skills necessary to improve in numerous contexts-including public speaking, small group, interpersonal, intercultural, leadership, interviewing, and technology-based communication. The result is an easy-to-read book that provides the tools to implement powerful changes in the ways you interact with others.

What Reviewers Are Saying
Stressing the need to cultivate, respect, and value others as well as ourselves, this text provides a straightforward guide on how to develop a caring approach to communication in order to build and sustain better relationships. -- Patricia Wiggin, International Technological University This is one of the best personal communication texts I have seen, especially for a broad, skills-based course. The writing is relatable, manageable, and clear for students-it is remarkable in its ability to apply ideas in ways that are easy to understand. The exercises are well-written. The price point of the text is really nice. Finally, it features chapters related to speaking pedagogy, a piece of the puzzle too often overlooked in other introductory texts. -- Brent A. Saindon, Davis and Elkins College The Art of Communication will resonate with students and teachers alike, stimulating a passion for being in relationship with others. Fujishin has a beautiful way of speaking to the heart, and his message continually inspires me to work on being the best rendition of myself. His conversational and relational approach to writing makes learning the life skills within this book a joy. I highly recommend it to those wanting to improve their communication skills in a variety of contexts. -- Michelle Zajac, West Valley College
