This impressive third edition will ignite readers to hone their communication skills and achieve positive results when they interact with others. Smith and Tague-Busler remain dedicated to presenting interpersonal communication concepts in a lively, accessible manner that compels students to grasp and apply useful communication techniques in their daily lives. Each chapter begins with a list of topics discussed, followed by a vignette—an element that grabs attention and artfully illustrates essential points discussed in the chapter. These clever chapter introductions, the inclusion of engaging personal experiences, the authors’ conversational writing style, and their clear presentation of complex topics defuse the possibility of confusion or intimidation. Students will find the subject matter comprehensible, manageable, enjoyable, applicable, and unforgettable. Discussion questions, the appearance of key terms in boldface throughout the text, and a comprehensive! glossary are additional attributes that make teaching and learning about interpersonal communication a gratifying experience.
