    From intrapersonal communication to face-to-face interactions, public addresses to computer-mediated communication, nonverbal communication lays a foundation for understanding what is important to effective message development, transmission, and understanding via nonverbal codes and subcodes.

    The seventh edition of Nonverbal Communication: Studies and Applications demonstrates the importance of nonverbal communication in all settings and all contexts. Readers learn the vital role nonverbal communication plays in everyday interactions, as well as nonverbal theories and practices that are key to becoming a better communicator.

    Nina-Jo Moore explores nonverbal communication through a unique sensory lens with a focus on how nonverbal communication is processed through our five senses. The text examines how different communication scholars approach the study of nonverbal communication, how our brains process this communication style, and other factors that affect how we use and interpret nonverbal messages, including age, cultural backgrounds, race, status differences, and sex and gender differences.

    The seventh edition features enhanced emphasis on the application of contemporary research findings, more than 175 new sources and studies, fresh and expanded material on computer-mediated communication, and an appendix that explains how to effectively conduct communication research.
