Drawing significantly on both classic and contemporary research, Nonverbal Communication speaks to today’s students with modern examples that illustrate nonverbal communication in their lived experiences.
This new edition, authored by three of the foremost scholars in nonverbal communication, builds on the approach pioneered by Burgoon, Buller and Woodall which focused on both the features and the functions that comprise the nonverbal signaling system. Grounded in the latest multidisciplinary research and theory, Nonverbal Communication strives to remain very practical, providing both information and application to aid in comprehension.
