Press Release: Gordon Gatherer’s New Book “Diplomacy: The Art of Communication” Is An Illuminating Read That Revolves Around The Importance of Communication And The Concept of Diplomacy.

Gordon Gatherer, a singer, composer, actor, writer and director; has completed his most recent book “Diplomacy: The Art of Communication”: a gripping and potent manuscript filled with pages of thoughts, theories, and real-life situations that centers upon the elements of diplomacy, communication, and human traits as they weave into the many sides of society.

Gordon writes, “Diplomacy: The Art of Communication is a personal insight into the human experience—the mechanisms that guide us, the interactions, emotional reactions, confrontations, celebrations, thoughts that shape us, the words that define us, the actions that represent us, and the universe that reflects us.

This book explores the basic elements of diplomacy, communication, human traits we all possess and how they apply to the world and our interactions with each other.

Various scenarios and exercises, as well as real life stories, offer a simple unbiased alternative approach to understanding communication (life’s basic mechanism) and how we are all a part of that mechanism in what we say and do.

This book also includes a collection of some personal thoughts, philosophies, and words of inspiration entitled ‘Gordonisms.’

The theories and opinions in this book are based on personal and professional experience in the areas of communication, conflict resolution, education, program directing, motivational-developmental workshop programs, and international creative and performing arts programs and events.

The opinions and theories in this book are not to influence or validate facts, as well as define a right and wrong approach, but only to see another perspective of our existence.

Maybe something might inspire you or make you think of something in your own life or maybe even touch your heart and make the world and ourselves clearer to understand.”


Published by Fulton Books, Gordon Gatherer’s book is an important discourse that shares knowledge and understanding how the art of communication affects the concept of diplomacy. Readers who wish to experience this fascinating work can purchase “Diplomacy: The Art of Communication” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble. Please direct all media inquiries to Gregory Reeves via email at or via telephone at 877-210-0816.
