Communicating Effectively, Tenth Edition, is written for students taking speech communication classes for the first time. The book covers the theory and practice of communication, first by examining the communication process, second by discussing interpersonal communication, third by looking at other forms of communication including group, intercultural, professional communication, and that which occurs on the Internet, and fourth by offering a thorough examination of public communication. The overall approach of the book is pragmatic, so that students can not only see but appreciate the practical application of the ideas, concepts, and theories in their own lives and in the lives of people who are close to them.
