Summary

Written in a warm and lively style and packed with learning tools, The Basics of Communication offers an engaging look at the inseparable connection between relationships and communication. Steve Duck and David T. McMahan combine theory and application to introduce students to fundamental communication concepts. Their book also provides practical instruction on communicating interpersonally, in groups, in interviews and on making effective presentations. The authors encourage students to think critically, to link communication theory to their own experiences, and to improve their communication skills in the process.

"Duck and McMahan have done everything in their power to compose a textbook that is not only thorough and informative, but which students will also be able to REALLY relate to." -Thomas Harkins

"The strengths of this book include the ease of reading, relevant examples and everyday experiences used to help explain concepts, and the discussion of the various ‘selves’ or ways in which we perform identity." -Lori Johnson

"This book is written in a conversational tone and incorporates many recent research findings in the chapter, and it also provides some useful classroom activities." -Yinjiao Ye

"It is a well written and comprehensive introductory treatment of key issues in communication studies." -Rick Olsen

"Students should be able to relate readily to this book with its easy to understand writing style which doesn't get bogged down in the author's own sense of self-importance." -Richard West

Awesome book May 15, 2011

I purchased this textbook from ecampus, it is a paperback cover but it comes new. My textbook was the same as all the others. I would always recommend looking for your school textbooks online at ecampus before going to your own school bookstore. This way is much cheaper. It probably saved me around $20 or more just for this book.
