Editorial Reviews

Review


"Interplay is the ideal text for an introductory interpersonal communication class. I am thrilled with the subject order of the book and the fact that the second chapter is about culture and communication. It's the only complete text on the market!"--Heather Bixler, College of the Sequoias


"Interplay makes the ideas behind interpersonal communication come alive through terrific diagrams, tables, and charts, and the use of film really helps students see how communication concepts play out in real life."--Kristin Haun, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Format: Paperback
At the beginning of the year I rented the book Interplay: The Process of Interpersonal Communication. I use this book for the course Interpersonal Communication that I am currently enrolled in. This is a great textbook that is paperback and interesting to read.

Interplay is a realistic fiction book that is useful for myself, being a communications major, but also for other students who are interested in the course. It’s an informative and easy text to read. Since the class that I am enrolled in isn’t really assignment based from the book, the text is useful in regards to just reading it and learning. Even though some students don’t favor in reading long pieces of text, this book gets really interesting it’s almost as if you start reading and just can’t stop. The authors greatly layout the ways of communication throughout each chapter. The book is written in two parts but the topics are discussed in twelve chapters. These chapters explain the fundamentals of relationships, communication skills, and the basics of interpersonal communication. Within these chapters are a variety of vocabularies that not only defines the word but also gives examples. The examples help to better understand the word which is really nice about this book. Another great aspect of this book is that the examples given could perhaps relate to your life or maybe you can get ideas of bad habits you may want to change. One thing that my professor does is have in class applications and these applications apply to each chapter with various scenarios in which the class must discuss.

I do find this textbook very graphical. It includes a picture at the opening page of the chapter that symbolizes what will be discussed.

I had to buy this book for one of my classes and ended up reading ahead (which I never, ever do). Interpersonal communications is fascinating to me, and this book has a perfect way of explaining different ways to communicate interpersonally AND how to perfect your own style. I believe this book is helping me become a better communicator within all my relationships.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This textbook is a Dada masterpiece of meaninglessness. It is crammed full of unnecessary citations, ridiculously verbose, and often contradicts itself. Many of the charts and graphs, on inspection, don't actually show anything- they have no keys, no scaling, no data. They're just there to look "sciencey." I'm not sure it isn't an elaborate prank- Ocorrafoo Cobange, did you write this?

This book was required for class. This is a great book to read whether or not taking this class. It gives a comprehensive understanding the development in our society and what to expect of people and how people see you as a person. You will also understand how misinterpretation can start and add to future misunderstanding without clarification. I recommend this book to other students.

Each new class, I need a new book. My prior experience is that the text books are dry information and data providing tools. This text actually seems to have a higher interest level. Of course, the topics of relations and communication is relevant to anyone. Yet, the way this is written shows the authors took time to relate, using their best interpersonal communication skills in writing, to attract the reader to continue on rather than simply using it as a reference to answer a few questions for a course.

I would highly recommend using Amazon Student because I found this book cheaper online than I did in my college book store. Plus I ordered my book less than three days before classes started and I got it bright and early Monday morning. Free shipping is always an added bonus when paying for heavy textbooks!

The book was in pristine condition when I got it, and I even bought it used. Kudos to Amazon!
