Product description

Review

I have been collecting feedback from students in my Interpersonal Communication classes, and specifically have asked about their impressions of the text, Close Encounters: Communication in Relationships. They love it. I have never had such overwhelming, positive reactions to any textbook. Here's a sample response: I feel like I have been put in this class to really learn and apply something to my life because it seems like the authors are talking directly to me and relating things to my life right at this very moment. I love this class and this book. I actually do all the readings and enjoy them. I may just have to keep this book. "--Kara Laskowski"Reviewer" (01/17/2013)"

" This is the one text that I have selected for which I have not received student complaints. I think the students find it interesting and easy to read. "--Todd Lee Goen (01/17/2013)"

" One of my main goals is to get my students to move beyond the over-simplified textbooks and actually dig into the research. This book provides a nice transition. "--Rick Murphy (01/17/2013)"

" This book provides a good coverage of the major topics in the field and effectively synthesizes major research findings in each area. I appreciate the theoretical nature of the book. Students who enter the course thinking they know everything about Interpersonal Communication quickly figure out that the course will be both challenging and interesting when they begin to read the book. "--Melanie Laliker (01/17/2013)"

" I like the text .good array of major topics in the discipline. "--Lisa (Farinelli) Allen (01/17/2013)"

" The book is a nice read, easy to digest but true to the literature. "--Graham Bodie (01/17/2013)"
