A perennial bestseller in hardcover, translated into many languages, and one of the best books ever about human communication, this work has formed the foundation of much research in interpersonal communication. The authors identify simple properties or axioms of human communication and demonstrate how all communications are a function of their contexts. A new foreword by Bill O'Hanlon puts Watzlawick's work and importance in context.
Paul Watzlawick, who died in 2007, was an internationally-known psychologist. An expert in human communication, he was one of the most influential members of the Mental Research Institute (MRI) in Palo Alto, CA. Janet Beavin Bavelas is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Victoria. Don D. Jackson, a founding father of therapy, was a therapist and teacher, and made countless contributions to the understanding of human behavior.
