Review:


"Interplay is a comprehensive, must-use text for the introductory interpersonal communication course. The authors offer a plethora of specific examples of concepts and up-to-date research citations. The graphics, cartoons, and diagrams provide fantastic illustrations of the concepts. I finally found a text that students don't complain about!"-- Rachel M. Reznik, Elmhurst College


"This is one of the best-written interpersonal communication texts on the market. Always has been, and still is. It includes chapters on the key topics that should be discussed in any interpersonal communication class, including nonverbal communication, listening, conflict, and defensive and supportive communication."--Lowell Habel, Chapman University


"Interplay does an excellent job of providing a thorough, entry-level survey of interpersonal communication theory and research, and does so in a very accessible way. It doesn't feel 'dumbed-down, ' but students generally find it relatively easy and interesting to read. Every semester I have students tell me they are keeping the text because they liked it so much and see it as a great resource."--Patricia Smith Ollry, Concordia University


"The scholarship is the newest and freshest I've seen. I love the emphasis on technology. I love how the chapters are sectioned off and important sections are added to account for changes in society. I think the authors achieved their goal because they tailored a book to today's very busy student. They also added many media clips and socially important research. It is easy to follow, has excellent references to popular culture, and has fantastic 'nugget boxes.'"--Matthew Taylor, Lone Star College
