"I believe that the Adler treatment of IPC is one of the best in the field… It presents this material in a clear and relevant fashion for students. It covers topics of significant importance for the personal and relational growth of students. It is easy to teach from. The ancillary materials are excellent and further the instruction quality of the text…This is one of the most teacher and student friendly books in the field. Excellent visuals in the chapters and excellent applications and exercises."

"I think this text has class. Our students think it has real value, so much so, that they keep it. With this text we change lives, empower people and teach skills and concepts for a communication rich life."

"I thought the (Communication Scenarios) were interesting and insightful. I also think that my students would enjoy the scenarios. Because we live in such a media generated society, I have found that my students truly enjoy watching concepts rather then being lectured on a concept."

Fantastic communication textbook March 15, 2011
I bought this textbook as a present for newly wed couple. It is a great book to learn a lot about communication that we don't necessarily learn from day to day interaction. Even though this book is aimed at students, it offers the reader the opportunity to gain communication strategies that they might have not known and the ability to better understand the world of communication around them.
