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."

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.

Customer Reviews

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.

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!
