About this book

Reviews

"Stated simply, The Ins and Outs of Business and Professional Discourse Research is a fine book. It is destined to become a standard within the field. The book brings together research insights from the field's leading research on two extremely important topics: 1) how to initiate the research process; and, 2) how to develop practical applications for the findings. This topic combination is brilliant. I highly recommend this book both to new scholars entering the field as well as to researchers who are already firmly established. Both groups will find information that is new and helpful in their professional development. This book is a top-notch piece of work that combines the best of theory with a practical focus so necessary for the future success of our field." - Ron Dulek, John R. Miller Professor of Management, University of Alabama, USA

"A welcome collection, demonstrating the growing recognition of the value of an eclectic, informed, discursive approach to addressing real-world organisational issues. Forging closer connections, and developing greater mutual understanding and respect, can only serve to strengthen both academic research and organisational management and consulting." - Gill Ereaut, Founder of Linguistic Landscapes Ltd, Organisational Consultants
