They organize fundamentals such as nonverbal, language, perception and the self in a manner I've not seen in other introductory communication texts...The combination of areas under each principle helps to a reading this text. Its conversational tone and use of contemporary examples make it approachable to students.' - Timothy P Mottet, Southwest Texas State University. 'This is an impressive text. The authors have done a good job of condensing the vast amount of information related to communication studies into a manageable and cohesive text.' -Phil Hoke, The University of Texas at San Antonio.
