The article presents information about the book "Power of Words," by Stuart and Marian Chase. The book attempts "connect some of the diverse disciplines touching on communication." The first part of the book has much to say about the discoveries, theories, or special language of various people concerned with the processes of communication; "communication engineers, brain physiologists, linguists, grammarians, cultural anthropologists, physicists, semanticists, group dynamicists. Chase finds interesting things to say about the work of these various specialists and makes good suggestions for further reading.
