Mastering Human Relations, Fourth Canadian Edition 

 

Mastering Human Relations, 4th Canadian Edition , is aimed at first year college students studying the field of Human Relations.  In this 4th edition, the organization of the text has now been simplified and divided into two main parts. Part One, which comprises seven chapters in total, is entitled Personal Dimensions of Human Relations Mastery, and deals with matters pertaining to  the individual and their impact on the communication process. Part Two, which covers the remaining four chapters, is entitled Social and Interpersonal Dimensions of Human Relations Mastery and focuses on person-to-person communications in terms of ego-state transactions.  The only Canadian text on the market, Mastering Human Relations, 4th Canadian Edition, features many student study aids as well as Instructor Supplements to make the study and instruction of Human Relations as easy and comprehensive as possible. 

 

The evolution of the text has resulted in a very clear, comprehensive, and easy-to-use package. The employment of self-diagnostics, application exercises, a built-in study guide, and a conversational writing style really seems to work. A number of students have commented favourably on the text in their course evaluations. Comments like “easy to read,” “interesting text” and “text was worth the money” seem to sum up my students’ reactions. I think that most students respond well to the personal tone and creative enhancements that Falikowski has employed.
