Format: Paperback
Communication is a very nuanced subject that requires years of experience and a continued desire for further refinements. In their book "Communicating in Small Groups: Principles and Practices" authors Steven A. Beebe and John T. Masterson break down the technicalities of communication in small groups and teams and provide specific recommendations for improvement. "Communicating in Small Groups" was by far one of the most approachable texts in communication that I have ever encountered.

Beebe and Masterson break down the elements of group communication into digestible pieces that allow the reader to understand not only theory behind each element, but also the practice. The concepts are presented in three parts: "Foundations of Group and Team Communication", "Managing Group and Team Relationships", and "Managing Group and Team Tasks". Each segment of the text features examples of the ideas presented along with case studies that allow the reader to practice the concepts in context.

As with any textbook, the information is catered to a school audience (college-level in this particular example), but the text is approachable enough for use in any type of business training environment. Additionally the book provides a solid foundation for individuals looking to become more civically engaged by providing key leadership training, group participation advice, and examples on how to foster creative solutions. The information is easy to comprehend and the text is well referenced. I would recommend "Communicating in Small Groups" to anyone looking to improve their teamwork skills or those stepping into a leadership position within a group.

Purchased this book for my class of small group communications, it is a very good bood as it covers what one needs to know in small group communications, the chapters are clean but full of good information to help you become better in coimmunicating in small groups. The book has some very good case studies for you to work on and see what the results can be. It does the job very well for the course that it is used for.

Just not my style of book. Actual content is good but the book could be half the length if the 'talking' was cut out, I really don't care about your personal life Mr. Author, if I did I would read your blog if you wrote one.

Good textbook for Small Group Communication course. Chapter 2 on small group communication theory applications is really great to see included. Chapter assessments are great for student application/engagement.

I got this book for my class. I didn't want to buy a book that I would not use in the future. So I rent it. The rent time is longer then Barnes & Noble and cheaper. Will be using it in the future.
