Synopses & Reviews
REVEL for The Interpersonal Communication Book approaches the subject of communication through integrative theory, research, and hands-on methods. A threefold approach identifies important communicative concepts: choices in interpersonal situations, the theories and research that support these choices, and the communication skills necessary to effectively use these theories. The text allows students to examine the question of how, when, and through which channels they should communicate in different contexts. The Fourteenth Edition provides the newest insights and research in person-to-person interaction, making for an up-to-date source for communication study. New features and chapter-by-chapter updates make The Interpersonal Communication Book the most comprehensive, relevant source on the topic.
