Book News Annotation:
Placing group communication in the context of teamwork, Hoover (Western Kentucky University) examines team communication in manufacturing, health care, and the service sectors in this text for undergraduates. In this second edition, there is increased emphasis on virtual teamwork, with added material on leadership and ethical considerations, and greater emphasis is placed on the global nature of teamwork by incorporating more examples from other cultures. This edition also features a case study for each chapter, accompanied by discussion questions and activities related to each case.
