From the Back Cover:

Reviewer Praise for DeVito's
Messages: Building Interpersonal Communication Skills

“DeVito does an outstanding job bringing the cultural role in interpersonal communication to the students in real-world examples and thought-provoking exercises.”

Shannon Valdivia, Mt. Hood Community College

“I like the format and content of Messages and its practical approach to everyday communication situations when I have compared it to other texts. ”

Patricia J. Minton, Hibbing Community College

“I like all of the features and that is what I think makes this book more interesting to students. It's not just reading...students can test themselves, see the skills outside of the classroom, and have adequate review of the material. ”

Julie Simanski, Des Moines Area Community College

“I use Messages because it is thorough, easy to read and helps drive home what I am trying to teach. It helps me create meaning and understanding about interpersonal relationships.”

Gretchen A. Harries, Austin Community College

“I like the inclusion of ethics throughout, something often lacking in interpersonal texts, and I'm very impressed by a separate chapter on power, which is unusual and most welcome...”

Victoria Clements, College of Southern Maryland

“DeVito does a good job of incorporating new knowledge into the text and gives great 'real life' examples for the student.”

Leslie Maggard, McLennan Community College

“ The text is attractively laid out. I like the use of color very much...and the quotations in the margins are superb.”

Chris Kennedy, Western Wyoming Community College

“ The text is first rate in organization and content presentation; effective teaching of research, theory, and skills; and layout and design elements.”

Dr. Leonard Barchak, McNeese State University
