This text provides a practical overview of a range of contemporary interpersonal concepts.
This text is student friendly, and also research and theory based. It isn't just a well-organized and easy to navigate text, but is a text that shows how interpersonal relationships are pivotal in the study of communication. This textbook showcases that this is not just a "talk show" class, but a high level educational experience.
This textbook hits the ball out of the park! The authors did a great job of giving the student/reader the tools to become a more effective interpersonal communicator.
Interpersonal Communication offers fresh examples of established theories to fully engage students. . . . The direct links to careers make this text distinct from other interpersonal communication texts.
Practical application of theory so it is understandable to freshman through sophomore students. They will be able to read it, apply it, and use it.
A practical, well written text that students should be able to read and use to understand IPC concepts.
A fresh approach using comprehensive theories of interpersonal communication. Career focus will be helpful to some of the lost speech students.
I think this is an excellent textbook for a four-year college lower-division interpersonal course, especially if you have no other course in interpersonal communication. If interpersonal communication is a general education requirement and this is the only exposure to IPC, again, this book does a better job than the average lower division textbook does in my opinion. It incorporates lots of theory and research.
Interpersonal Communication is an engaged text, providing the best of IPC learning!! Excellent content, layout, and knowledge provided for an IPC learner
A good treatment of interpersonal communication that is user-friendly for students and instructors.
