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."

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 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.

This book was everything I could have hoped it to be. It was clear, easy to understand, used layman's terms. Made the course I am taking a snap!

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!

As a basic for terms and theories, it was okay. I did feel that it was over worded and sometimes not always clear. I had better luck with the lecture and the book was only useful for our online quizzes on terminology.

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

It's a textbook. What do you expect, pull an all nighter like you did with Harry Potter? No, it's pretty boring. But I got an A in the class so I guess I learned something.

I found this book so interesting that I purchased it after I had rented it for use in a college course. A lot of good info on communication and perceptions.
