I gave this book to a man who has difficulty making meaningful social connections with people. He has Asbergers. He said he read it tirelessly, hungry for what was in the book, thinking this book was meant for him to read. I read a similar book that changed my life years ago. It was a text like this for a communications class. Someone thought I should take communications, so I did. I though it was all about me too!

Many people learn this stuff growing up, but I didn't. We didn't communicate really in my family. Love was something you get from someone. After taking that class I met the man of my dreams, and 10 years later we were married. Communications class helped, as well as other communication-oriented classes. Therapy helped too.

I never felt I could understand why people did what they did. This book is a start.

I got this book for my Interpersonal Communications class this year and am about to go to my last class of the semester. I found the book interesting and easy to read - and we did read it in it's entirety. A lot of it was very basic but this is for an introductory course, so I'm not sure what else one would be be looking for really :D I personally enjoyed the things I did learn and had no problem glossing over the things that were already common knowledge. All in all no complaints from my end - thanks for an engaging book :D

I bought this for a class, as it was required, and I will honestly say that it is a "must -". I have learned so much about Interpersonal Comm.! The author is great; so many examples are provided and the concepts are easily understood thanks to this book.

I thought the book (2nd edition) was excellent. It was well-written in that it presented ideas very clearly and succinctly. The examples presented in the book (including references to Seinfeld, Everyone Loves Raymond, Friends, etc.) usually illustrated the point being made. There were many, many references to theories in interpersonal communication and some technical jargon that accompanies those theories. My instructor relied heavily upon this book and he is one of the stronger professors at my institution.

This book could be improved by providing more exercises. Occasionally various classifications (of behavior, etc.) in the theory were a little abstract and there were not enough examples to really clarify the point. The on-line quizzes presented scenarios and asked me to classify the scenario per the terms of the theory. A little more practice with these scenarios (e.g. exercises) would have better prepared me for the test. As I write this, I realize I'm giving a plug for the workbook, which I did NOT use.

Still I found this book to be exceptional. I rented it and want this as a permanent resource, so I expect to buy this in used condition when the 3rd edition comes out. I'm a solid "A" student with credits from several quality institutions and I don't understand the haters who have given it a substandard review.

I feel again mislead by the description. I realize I'm buying a used book, however I have done this for three semesters and everything usually matches up, however this description stated it was in "good" condidtion with "little to no markings". This was incorrect. I would have put this book in the "acceptable" catagory which is under 'good' in the ratings scale of used books; there was highlighting and writing on every single page, which to me, does not qualify for "little or no markings" but a lot. I need the book for a class that starts tomorrow, but if I had the time I totally would have returned it. Not happy the description and the product didn't match up.

Reflect and Relate is a great book, and what's funny is I recognize a lot of the lessons from church even though titles and terminology differs slightly.
