Awesome  March 20, 2011

This is certainly a pretty good textbook set for a communication class. This is a book the students can truly learn from and one any teacher can truly create the kind of flow that a seasoned instructor could create. I recommend this book to the serious student of communication or a department looking to give their students a first-class textbook. I saved about $10. Book is in great condition, better than the used books at my college. Book arrived 3 days earlier than expected!
