Summary

Reviewer Praise for Seiler and Beall's Communication: Making Connections "The book strikes a very pleasing balance between theoretical principles and skill development. Major theories were identified but they were put into 'real life' terms." Corinne E. Morris, Northeast Community College "The boxes and scenarios...help the students to 'make connections' with real situations and enable them to become critical observers and thinkers, and more competent communicators." Louis A. Lucca, LaGuardia Community College (CUNY) "Overall, I really like the Making Connections material. I think that these sections help the students actually apply the material and I have found them to be useful discussion activities in the classroom." Marty Birkholt, Creighton University "The emphasis on technology appeals to many, as do the issues of civility, ethics, and communication between cultures, genders and with special populations." Dr. David W. Worley, Indiana State University " The book weaves information together in a way that enables students to grasp easily the skills necessary for effective practice." Thomas J. Knutson, California State University Sacramento "The basic approach of this text is that conceptual matter is presented with clear explanation in a user-friendly writing style." "The writing style, level, clarity, pace, and tone of the text seem appropriate. Students seem to enjoy reading the book..." Donald B. Simmons, Asbury College " One of the major strengths of the text is its balanced emphasis on theory and skill development which produces more competent communicators." Richard C. Emanuel, University of Montevallo "I think that the text strikes a good balance between public speaking and understanding some of the fundamental communication concepts in general. This balance is important because the text can be used in courses and with instructors who have different emphases." Sean M. Dunn, Bridgewater College
