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.
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.
