Publisher Comments:

This Eighth Edition of Business and Administrative Communication by Donna Kienzler and Kitty Locker is a true leader in the business communications field. Beyond covering the broad scope of topics in both oral and written business communication, Lockers text uses a student-friendly writing style and strong design element to hold student attention. Real-world examples and real business applications underscore the relevance and importance of the material presented in the classroom and to the students careers.

Kitty Lockers text also conveys the best possible advice to students through its research base; the authors reputation as a contributor to this field of study lends an even greater element of teachability and relevance to this market-leading title. Locker continues to lead the pack with innovative technology offerings – InSites, Grademax, Manager's Hotseat for Business Communication – round out the learning experience with Business and Administrative Communication.
