"Offers the reader a concise and very readable tour through the many facets of PR... Providing a detailed reference of just under 200 alphabetically listed entries, covering a range of topics, from account management to wikis, destination branding and Hong Bo (that one you'll have to look up yourselves), each entry takes up roughly a page, sometimes less, is colloquial in tone and offers several recommendations for further reading, making it an excellent jumping-off point for further exploration."
- Communication Director
