Julia T. Wood presents college and university students with a helpful resource in her textbook Communication Mosaics: An Introduction to the Field of Communication, ISBN 9780495794158. Boasting a first-person writing approach, this text provides the most current research, theories, and coverage to present readers with an all-inclusive look at the communication field. This relatable guide offers practical strategies that can be used to improve one's personal, professional, and public communication skills. Beginning with introductions to the foundational processes and skills needed for all communication contexts, the text then graduates into discussions of the application of such strategies in specific realms such as interpersonal and public speaking. Julia T. Wood received her her M.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University. She currently serves as the Lineberger Professor of Humanities and a professor in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she teaches courses and conducts research on gender, communication, culture, and communication in personal relationships. Wood is also a seasoned writer authoring seventeen books and editing nine others. She has also published more than eighty articles and book chapters, and she has won twelve awards for undergraduate teaching and thirteen awards for her scholarship. Wood organizes the concepts of Communication Mosaics: An Introduction to the Field of Communication across three comprehensive sections and 15 chapters. Part I presents readers with information on 'Communication Careers and Foundations.' Part II discusses 'Communication Processes and Skills' with the book concluding with part III presenting 'Contexts of Communication.'
