Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a 'pick-up-and-go' package where there is ample material provided to create effective learning environments. . . . The text provides students an easy yet effective treatment of the foundations of interpersonal communication."

"This book has a smooth and conversational tone. The author uses personal examples that help to forge a connection between reader and writer, and there are a lot of examples (e.g., first-hand testimonials) from a wide variety of sources."

"I chose Wood's text because it is one of the most up-to-date texts in the field. Julia T. Wood is one of the foremost scholars in the discipline, and through her research and work in the field, she stays abreast of the latest information. I think this is clearly the best text for me and my students."

About the Author

Julia T. Wood is the Lineberger Professor of Humanities, the Caroline H. and Thomas Royster Distinguished Professor of Graduate Education, and a professor in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she teaches courses and conducts research on gender, communication, culture, and communication in personal relationships. Dr. Wood has authored 17 books and edited 9 others. In addition, she has published more than 80 articles and book chapters, and she has won 12 awards for undergraduate teaching and 13 awards for her scholarship.

It was clear, easy to understand, used layman's terms.

I went through the book hoping that it was only the first few chapters with underlining throughout, but it wasn't.

I was disappointed to find that this book requires an additional purchase in order to access the on-line resources - it is not included in the price. I think Cengage Learning have let themselves down on this aspect.

The chapters are mostly short and easy to understand. The pages are colorful and I LOVE the students' short stories and anecdotes.

This book is essential to anyone who is taking an interpersonal communications course and it is also valuable to anyone whom is not a student and just interested in developing their communication skills. I am a Paralegal Student at Evergreen Valley College and this book was required for a class that I am taking. It is also helpful in my own personal life.

I ordered this book not knowing how the "rented" text books would be like, and I loved it. Its it great condition and the price was awesome. For it originally being $150+, I only had to pay $20 to rent. I'm satisfied!

This book contains some fabulous information about communication. It reads as a textbook not as novel. Great ideas and good authorship.
