?A carefully written, well-organized manual of advice for all medical communicators. This collection of essays written by the 10 members of The Health Care Communication Group is really about developing verbal consciousness of life in health care: how to listen attentively, speak coherently, write effectively, and read critically. It is a remarkable book filled with practical solutions to real-life problems faced by physicians, editors, writers, readers, teachers, nurses, managers, patients, and scientists. . . . Will be useful for anyone involved in communication in health care.??Stan Goldman, AMWA Journal

?This book serves as an excellent resource on all forms of communication encountered by health care professionals, and would be suitable for a research sequence in any scientific discipline. . . . This book takes a pragmatic approach to communication. It is loaded with ?how-tos? and useful tips and suggestions. This book should be part of every health care professional?s reference collection.??Beverly J. Schmoll, Physical Therapy

Winner of 2002 Allied Health Medical Book Award from the American Medical Writers Association

?What a precious addition to my bookshelf! Both tyro and pro will find tips and tricks here for the very things that no one formally teaches. I only wish a book like this had been around when I was beginning in medicine. I?d like to put a copy in the hands of all my students and housestaff.??Abraham Verghese, M.D., author of My Own Country and The Tennis Partner
