Drawing significantly on both classic and contemporary research,Nonverbal Communication uses modern examples to illustrate nonverbal communication in readers'lived experiences. This new edition, authored by three of the foremost scholars in nonverbal communication, builds on the approach pioneered by Burgoon, Buller and Woodall which focused on both the features and the functions that comprise the nonverbal signaling system. Grounded in the latest multidisciplinary research and theory,Nonverbal Communicationstrives to remain very practical, providing both information and application to aid in comprehension.
