ICOMM: Interpersonal Concepts and Competencies, provides an integrated approach to the study of interpersonal communication. This accessibly written but authoritative text emphasizes the development of communication competencies, including skills, understanding of the theory and research that contextualizes the skills to make them relevant to learning, and the motivation to put the skills into practice. While incorporating many traditional intrapersonal and interpersonal topics found in current texts, the book is distinctive in that it offers a skills-based approach that is grounded in solid theory and research. Students will find that the text is written in a personal and friendly manner, stressing concepts, skills, and applications that should be an important part of their daily lives.

Review:

Berko, Aitken, and Wolvin have it all for my next interpersonal communication course. Their new text weaves application and practice with theory. The book teaches concrete skills while introducing larger principles and important vocabulary. All the while, this work balances vivid examples and stories with extensive, current research in the field. In sum, "IComm" is a mindful eyeful of interpersonal communication. It my course's textbook from now on. (Tony Zupancic, Notre Dame College)

This book is itself a model of the lessons it teaches. It will make for more effective communication with your students. It makes learning enjoyable because it feeds the desire to know. ICOMM: Interpersonal Concepts and Competencies will be lovedby students and teachers.... (Leonard Shedletsky, University of Southern Maine)

ICOMM: Interpersonal Concepts andCompetencies will be loved by students and teachers. (Leonard Shedletsky, University of Southern Maine)

This substantial interpersonal communication text book aims for accessibility for students. The authors begin with an address to the students: ‘This text is written in a personal and friendly manner, stressing concepts that should be important in your daily life.... you will find that interpersonal communication is very important to you.’ In keeping with this approach, each chapter includes from four to 10 activities that both demonstrate the importance of interpersonal communication and give the students practice in one or another aspect of it.... This book is well documented, with extensive endnotes, so that students can follow up with the relevant literature.
