Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a high-quality survey of the field of communication with a more theoretical approach than performance-based. It is well-written, interesting, and covers the field thoroughly and effectively."

"There is no book that compares to the hard work and effort Dr. Wood has put into writing this text. This book is simple to understand and covers a wide breadth of territory within the communication field."

I am finally over this class. wahoo. Great shipping and returning the product was very easy and simple. Honestly i would not rent/buy this book if i didn't have to but the book is actually really good it is less of a textbook and more of a story telling but overall no complains.
One more thing it was used previously with indentations and writing but that was perfectly fine with me.

I like the way the author used various people to make comments about being from different backgrounds and or cultures. Also the first page of each chapter has focus questions that are a usefull learning tool to prepare for the context that follows. The key concepts with page numbers in the summary provide for a map or outline that can simplify remembering all that you read.
