Our books in this issue are full of information and quick tips on that most universal of all subjects: communication. They cover many different facets, from improving your awareness and skills in handling interactions, to effectively supervising and coaching others.

A related theme is etiquette — the ground rules for making a favourable impression in all kinds of business situations, at home and abroad. HR professionals may find these books valuable in improving their own abilities in navigating in business, social and cross-cultural situations, or as educational resources to help managers and employees improve in these areas.
