Evaluation / Book review.
Written by Dennis List, founder of Audience Dialogue, this book is written primarily for media people in developing countries, and small communications-related organisations in the developed world. According to the author, in order to help readers whose first language is not English, the book is written in a clear, simple style, avoiding slang and academic jargon.
All chapters of the book are available on the website. Most chapters are late drafts of the 2002 edition of the book, plus a few corrections and updates. The printed version is very similar, but includes some corrections, and has a more detailed coverage of some topics.
