"A highly beneficial contribution to the field with chapters that are clear and concise and illuminate the interesting and important aspects of interpersonal communication. With each chapter students are informed about the components of the theory and are also provided with examples that they can relate to, which really brings these theories to life."
"love this book for its insight, organization, and inclusiveness. I like that the authors use specific examples and then apply their theory to the examples for illustration-this is how students begin to learn how to use and understand theories. What an accessible, thorough, and user-friendly book."
"This book is clearly needed as our discipline is advancing almost exponentially in the area of theory and theory development.
"Useful, thorough examination of interpersonal theories that will help my students apply theory competently to their own experience."
"This book had an excellent review of the relevant theories in Interpersonal Communication. The text was perfect for an advanced undergraduate course."
Great overview of theory and I really appreciate organizational structure. Wish there were some instructor's resources to accompany this title
