Drawing upon his own highly contemporary research on affection in relationships, and on the interplay of communication, physiology, and health, Kory Floyd has crafted a down-to-earth, 21st Century perspective on the complex and nuanced enterprise that is interpersonal communication. To reflect the experiences and expectations of today's multidimensional student population, Interpersonal Communication: The Whole Story addresses a broader range of interpersonal communication contexts than any other book of its kind--by incorporating "dark side" IPC throughout the text and by including deeply diverse populations in its research-based and everyday examples. Floyd describes this as telling "The Whole Story," (if not a more accurate one) rather than telling just the part that relates to mainstream populations. Throughout the text, Floyd encourages students to go beyond their "intuitive" notions about interpersonal communication, and helps them see the value in investigating relational processes systematically.
