Review:

"The Communication Age: Connecting and Engaging is the most accessible, user friendly introduction to speech communication currently on the market. It is truly a title that not only captures the challenge of teaching this subject but which also rises to that challenge and makes that goal attainable for 21st Century undergrads."--Dr. Tim Chandler

--Dr. Tim Chandler

"This generation of students learns differently, approach life differently, and has a different set of goals than generations in the past. The whole tone and theme of this book is just that! It embraces life in the communication age and the civic-mindedness of our current students. From the relevant real life scenarios presented by the authors to the Career Frontier feature, which offers practical strategies for communication competence in the workplace, this book has been so useful for me in the classroom. It's definitely more accessible/relevant than other textbooks on the market."

--Jaime Bochantin

"The Communication Age is a thought-provoking reflection of how we have arrived at a time in which traditional means of communicating are intricately intertwined with new technologies. Through the authors' modern, conversational writing style and extensive connection to current issues, the information in the text demonstrates a keen sense of understanding how to reach Millennial (Digital Native) students while also appealing to their Generation X (Digital Immigrant) professors. It is a solid base and a must read for any course that is designed to blend 21st century communication concepts with public speaking mastery."
