A native of Westfield, Virginia, Robert Maidment became interested in communications studies through the self-realization that he needed to be better informed about the world and how he related to it. Beginning with observations of human interaction, Maidment developed an ardent interest in organizational systems and how individuals interact within these groups.
Maidment devoted his career to developing his understanding of humanity and communication. A professor of educational management at the College of William & Mary for nearly twenty-five years, Maidment has written several eminent books for Pelican, including Tuning In: A Guide to Effective Listening, Straight Talk: A Guide to Saying More with Less, and Write It Right: A Guide to Better Messages. Robert’s Rules of Disorder, perhaps his most notable work, took twenty years of thorough observation and research before being written in only a few brief weeks. Each of these thoughtful guides details specific ways to overcome communication barriers for a more efficient lifestyle and how interaction between individuals is key to a stable and positive environment.
Throughout his career, Maidment has received praise for his work in communications studies from notable sources such as the American School Board Journal. He currently resides in Boca Raton, Florida, where he spends his time gardening and enjoying retirement.
