Overview

Interpersonal Communication & Human Relationships / Edition 7

Illustrates communication’s role in human relationships

This title introduces students to interpersonal communication principles and theories through the use of commonplace experiences, such as relationships with roommates, friends and co-workers. The book aims to motivate students to critically think about their own relational communication; it also peaks student interest in social science research.

MySearchLab is a part of the Knapp/Vangelisti/Caughlin program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore human communication in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.
