Abstract

Communication is central to being human and the way we experience life. We rely on effective communication to transfer information and ideas between one another and this then allows us to coordinate, cooperate and function at a high level. It is also important to remember that we are essentially social creatures and communication allows us to develop the bonds we need with other people, including family, friends, intimate partners and work colleagues. However, it is only when we stop to consider the role communication plays in our lives that we begin to realise how important it is. It affects all aspects of our lives, and in significant ways. The more effectively we communicate the better we are able to function across a wide range of important areas: we can better manage relationships so that they are healthy and produce happiness, we can better coordinate and cooperate with people, excel at pursuits and advance in our career, and manage difficult and complex tasks like those we encounter in our university studies, as well as in the workplace and in our professional lives. All of this provides the rationale for this book.
