I read this book for a class. I found the material enriching for my communication. It emphasizes communication with people as individuals. It is important to do so.

I read the full book for my communications class. The way the textbook was written was very clear cut and engaging, an unusual trait for a textbook. However--and this is a big HOWEVER--I found the book to be riddled with typos and grammatical errors. It's hard to take a textbook seriously when the editing is so poor.

another text book, it is cool to see how I communicate. Some of the things I do I had no clue that I did until I read this book.

This was a textbook for my Interpersonal Communication class. Since my major is Communication, I obviously loved what the text had to offer. I really enjoy learning about people, and learning about their relationships and communication patterns was fascinating.

I don't think I have ever enjoyed a "textbook" as much as this one. While its layout is comparable to one, It doesn't read like a textbook; it is more of a fun, intriguing, and supremely helpful non-fiction book.
