Communication is not always something that human beings have control over. We communicate messages all the time, even though much of our communication is beyond our own awareness. And while the media through which humans communicate has transformed over the years, one thing has not changed: the mass inculcation of nonverbal communication.

Casing Nonverbal Communication provides 25 case studies that explore why communication is prone to failure, as well as how nonverbal communication can become more effective and more predictive of positively valenced outcomes. Now, as we are well into the third decade of the 21st century, nonverbal communication scholarship continues to thrive. Given our collective use of mediated technologies and our increased reliance on such media for interpersonal, group, and organizational endeavors, understanding how to best communicate, nonverbally, seems as (if not more) important as ever. Communication is a human need. Something that we require for social survival. The more we know about this process, the more equipped we will be at dealing with, and succeeding in, our communicative endeavors.
