New To This Edition:

“Speaking Interpersonal-E” explores the many different facets of computer-mediated communication. These brief, thought-provoking nuggets invite technology-savvy readers to stop and think about how computer-mediated communication—from handhelds to blogs—permeates their lives.

“Understanding Interpersonal Theory and Research” boxes—including discussions of cues to lying, space violations, relationship dialectics theory, and conflict issues—highlight current interpersonal research and connect it with the students’ real world, helping them understand the practical nature of the theories they are encountering throughout the text.

• “Ask Yourself” margin notes present students with a real-world type scenarios—from romantic and workplace situations, to school and family life—that encourage them to apply the principles and skills discussed in the chapter.

The Eleventh Edition is accompanied by a blog—updated by the author—providing a forum for instructors interested in discussing teaching interpersonal communication in general as well as with The Interpersonal Communication Book.
