Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, bestselling author of Peace is Every Step and one of the most respected and celebrated religious leaders in the world, delivers a powerful path to happiness through mastering life's most important skill. How do we say what we mean in a way that the other person can really hear? How can we listen with compassion and understanding? Communication fuels the ties that bind, whether in relationships, business, or everyday interactions. Most of us, however, have never been taught the fundamental skills of communication—or how to best represent our true selves. Effective communication is as important to our well-being and happiness as the food we put into our bodies. It can be either healthy (and nourishing) or toxic (and destructive). In this precise and practical guide, Zen master and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how to listen mindfully and express your fullest and most authentic self. With examples from his work with couples, families, and international conflicts, The Art of Communicating helps us move beyond the perils and frustrations of misrepresentation and misunderstanding to learn the listening and speaking skills that will forever change how we experience and impact the world.

What would be your ideal job if you didn't have to worry about money? Would you like to have more responsibility or less? How far would you go for a promotion? When did you last stand up for what you believe in? What are you afraid of? In this unique handbook to your own life and work, there are no right or wrong answers: only honest ones. Featuring sections on subjects everyone can relate to, from the professional (work and finance), to the personal (sex and relationships), The Question Book can be used alone, like a journal; or with a colleague, partner or friend. It will probe and enlighten on everything, including what your boss really thinks about you, whether you are in the right job, and what motivates you to get out of bed every morning.

In The Question Book, you are under the spotlight. And only you have the answer.

"This book arrives at the exact right moment. The essays, authored by leading communication scholars, confront important and timely issues at the intersections of communication and health, from mobile apps and datafication of health, to the impact of social media influencers on food choice, marketing of vitamins to children, and the threats posed by misinformation to public health. As a collection, the book does a wonderful job giving a sense of the breadth and range of scholarly activity in communication and health. Highly recommended for scholars in communication studies, health studies and health communication!" --Timothy Caulfield, Professor of Health Law and Science Policy, University of Alberta This book explores the unique contribution that critical communication studies can bring to our understanding of health. It covers several broad themes: representing and mediating health; marketing and promoting health, co-producing health; and managing health crises and risks. Chapters speak to moral and social regulation through health communication, technologies of health, healthism and governmentality. They engage with historical and contemporary issues, offering readers theoretically grounded perspectives. At base, the book explores what a critical communication approach to health might look like, revealing in important--and sometimes surprising--ways how communication sits at the centre of understanding how health is constructed, contested, and made meaningful.

Social interaction in recent years has become the focus of systematic scientific research in a wide variety of academic disciplines. In Communication under the Microscope, Peter Bull shows how communication has become an object of study in its own right, which can be dissected in the finest detail through the use of film and recording technology. In so doing he provides a clear and valuable introduction into the theory and practice of microanalysis. Bull argues that microanalysis is both a distinctive methodology and a distinctive way of thinking about communication. He then focuses on the two principal elements of face-to-face communication: speech and non-verbal behaviour. Communication in particular social contexts is also addressed with related chapters on gender and politics. Finally, the practical aspects of microanalysis are discussed. This unique and thorough review of microanalysis integrates different approaches and draws together research literature which is often diverse and disparate. Presented in a clear and focused style, this book will be of interest to psychologists, social scientists and all students and researchers in the field of communication. Communication is central to many aspects of human life, yet it has only recently become the focus of systematic scientific investigation within a wide variety of academic disciplines. Communication has now become an object of study in its own right, and can be dissected in the finest detail with the use of recording technology (film, audiotape and videotape). This approach has become known as 'microanalysis', and forms the principal theme of Communication under the Microscope.

Advancement in telecommunications has drastically changed the way that people communicate, particularly in a professional capacity. The onslaught of e-mail, text and even instant messaging has given people other means with which to communicate with one another, but in doing, the art of personal, verbal and face-to-face communication is being lost, resulting in miscommunication and broken personal and professional relationships.
