The Science of Human Engagement:
Creating Connection in an Age of Noise

How do you tune communication to connect in an age of noise?

Science has proven the most effective communication touches the conscious and non-conscious mind at the same time, but how to reliably do so has been systemically blocked from the practice of professional communication, until now.

In The Science of Human Engagement: Creating Connection in an Age of Noise, Elizabeth Edwards, founder of Engagement Science Lab, Volume PR, and the Behavioral Communication movement, explores how the mind is evolving as noise and information sources multiply, and the opportunity before professional and everyday communicators alike to reorient how we think about talking to exhausted minds.
