This is a great book, and an easy read, for anyone who wants to improve their communication. Though it is a Christian book, it is applicable to everyone for whom communication is an important part of their role. It is a great beginners guide which covers everything from public speaking, to blogging, body language to sensitive conversations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book for the modern communicator 21 Jun. 2012
Who Needs Words is a very easy read - something which is laudable considering the difficult concepts is addresses. Littledale has an incredible gift of being able to take the complex world of linguistics, and explain it in a manner that is unpatronising and conversational (think Noam Chomsky crossed with Bill Bryson).

Who Needs Words would be a worthy addition to the shelf of anyone who is in the business of communication (i.e. everybody) and for people wish to be a little more self-reflexive and intentional about the things that they say. This book could also serve as a primer for people who are interested in the way messages can be disseminated in the new media age.
