The Business of Communicating
The Business of Communicating teaches the core business skills of writing, listening, and speaking. Unlike a lot of similar publications, it also covers some of the less tangible skills of modern business communications, such as running meetings, managing time, and communicating electronically.
The Business of Communicating is highly recommended for any student of business communications.
