Recommends it for: High school and College students
I read this book for a Graduate Counseling Self class at SUNY Brockport, NY. It was excellent. It's an easy read and it has so many very basic insights into interpersonal relationships. Should be a must read for high school and college students.
This is the textbook I'm currently using for my Speech 102 class. It is very useful and kind of like an Augusto Boal book . So...if you work in any at-risk populations or want to work on communication skills...this is a good workbook.
