Communication: Principles for a Lifetime, Portable Edition — Volume 1: Principles of Communication

Steven A. Beebe, Texas State University - San Marcos

Susan J. Beebe, Texas State University - San Marcos

Diana K. Ivy, Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi

Volume 1 of Communication: Principles for a Lifetime, Portable Edition introduces the five principles used throughout the text as a framework for understanding the importance of communication:

  • Be aware of your communication with yourself and others.
  • Effectively use and interpret verbal messages.
  • Effectively use and interpret nonverbal messages.
  • Listen and respond thoughtfully to others.
  • Appropriately adapt messages to others.

These principles are designed to help you see the “big picture” of the role and significance of communication, both as you sit in the classroom and as you live your life. The five principles are introduced in Chapter 1.1, and then each principle is discussed and illustrated in a separate chapter.

  • The innovative design of four separate volumesPrinciples of Communication, Interpersonal Communication, Communicating in Groups and Teams, and Presentational Speaking –allows you to take with you only the volume you need to read and study–the ultimate format to fit the way you live!
  • Contextually placed icons connect to our interactive online MyCommunicationLab resources featuring integrated video clips of selected speeches and communication concepts, activities, practice tests, and much more, so you can see examples of the communication principles in action and learn more about the theory and skills interactively.
