More About the Author

Hey Everyone! Thanks so much for visiting my Author's Page. My name is Steven McCornack (although I prefer "Steve"), and I'm the author of the interpersonal communication textbook, "Reflect & Relate." I'm currently Associate Professor, Honors Advisor, and Coordinator of the Undergraduate Program in the Department of Communication at Michigan State University, where I've taught since 1988 (frightening to think it's been so long!). I'm passionate about the importance of undergraduate teaching; and the transformative potential of interpersonal communication instruction in particular. Other than teaching, my principal passions are my family (Kelly, my wife of 20+ years; and my three Irish red-headed-maniac sons, Kyle, Colin, and Conor), music (I'm a fanatical audiophile and drummer), martial arts (Okinawan Karate), Yoga, wine, and coffee. If you're interested in contacting me directly, you always can connect with me via Facebook. Have a fantastic day!

Format: Paperback
Having spent two weeks in an accelerated course with this book as a guide I can easily say it was one of the biggest wastes of my time and money. This review is centered on the book's quality not how well Amazon did in delivering it. The book itself is very basic and focused towards people who don't know what "anger" or "betrayal" or "catharsis" is. For those of you who don't know, anger is what you will feel when you realized you purchased a grade-school textbook on what a "crush" is, betrayal is what you'll feel once your campus bookstore won't pay you more than 10 percent of the textbook's face value as a buy-back and catharsis is what you'll feel when you light this book on fire so that you can get some use out of it as fuel.
Boring, shallow and at times insulting to a college student's grasp on greater reality. If your prof recommends this book, run.

.
This book needs to be supplemented by a really engaging Instructor's lessons and lots of hands-on opportunities for the students.

This is the kind of textbook that kids are required to buy "by the powers that be" and the professor, who rarely gets to pick his or her own textbook, seldom uses.

I bought this book as a required text for my communication class. I remember being mad that I was told to spend money on it as the teacher did not use it and we read only a few times little scenarios from the book. If I did not need it for the class, I would not buy it. It did not impress me, I did not find anything interesting. Now I had to buy it again for my kid who is taking that class.
I am just a student, but if teacher who is told to use this book is ignoring it, maybe it tells something about the book's quality.
