Over the next few months, I have a number of new books coming out. In July, the 6th Edition of Communication Apprehension, Avoidance, and Effectiveness coauthored with Virginia P. Richmond and James McCroskey will be available (Published by Allyn & Bacon). In November the two-volume set on Workplace Communication published by Praeger will be available. Also in November, look for the 2nd edition of Quantiative Research Methods for Communication.
