Crítica de los usuarios - Marcar como inapropiado

I am currently reading this book because it is required for my graduate program. I am frustrated by the fact that I cannot make heads or tails of what they are attempting to communicate in this book. So far, by far, my least favorite (if I can even use the word favorite here) book. A word that describes my reading and comprehension of this book would be "futile".

Jablin and Putnam's attempt at comprehensiveness completely dwarfs any insight into the nature of organizational communication. It is the equivalent of reading a reference section with one sentence summaries of each study. It is the essence of everything that is wrong with many current grad programs and the ivory tower of academia.
Every graduate student I have ever met that has read this book has lamented their required reading of it. Avoid this book at all cost.
