Recommends it for: People Studying for the APR or a Masters in Integrated Communication
Well, now that I've gotten my APR, I'm glad to have this book around. While I didn't read the entire thing, it will stay on my shelf as a tried and true PR reference.

It's the PR bible, it turns out. Gotta have it to make it through the APR exam, so yes, I probably have just bought my last ever textbook. Unless I decide to get another masters or Ph.D. someday.

3.5 stars. This was the last textbook I will ever have to read for college! :)

This public relations textbook was good enough that I've saved it for all these years, and still refer to it occasionally. A favorite part of this book is the treatment of the American Revolution as a public relations campaign. According to this book, the Boston Massacre was not a spontaneous event and the Liberty Tree was a clever symbol for rallying the colonists.
