"The writing style is clear and accessible. Concepts are carefully explained and the transcripts are readable and illuminating. I would highly recommend this book to researchers and postgraduate students, and trainers and managers, who are interested in talk and collaboration at work." -- Applied Linguistics (Janet Maybin)
