Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"This book is pretty ambitious in a 'good way.' It challenges the students to apply course concepts in real world situations where answers are not always obvious. The NG "inserts" do a really nice job here."

— David Scott, Northeastern State University

"I believe this text provides a unique perspective, utilizing fantastic examples of how varying successful individuals utilize communication. Very exciting text!"

— Sandra Rath, Arizona State University

"A pretty traditional hybrid text with a unique emphasis on civility and diversity which is sorely needed in our society."

— Glynis Strause, Coastal Bend College

"....From what I see so far the examples are a real strength of the writing and certainly enhance the interest of the reading and engage the reader at a very visceral level."

— Glynis Strause, Coastal Bend College

"This chapter (Chapter 10: Developing Your Speech Topic and Purpose) takes students on a clear path to help them determine speech topics. The steps in the process of choosing a topic are articulated well. These pages on selecting a topic, narrowing the purpose, and developing a thesis statement are done very well. Finally, a textbook that explains this in such clear, step by step language, as opposed to textbooks that gloss over the process, leaving out the important connecting steps! I love the connection the author makes between purpose statements and thesis statements to guide students in developing a well-directed speech. In addition, the author does an excellent job discussing intro and conclusion techniques. Students can read this chapter and truly get it on their own."

— Brent Kice, Frostburg State University

"I like the incorporation of technology throughout, particularly in the chapters on interpersonal communication; the emphasis on conflict in relationships; coverage of traditional and contemporary communication concepts."

— Adam Roth, University of Rhode Island

"I particularly like the civic engagement content; we are currently trying to stress this more in our course."

— Darren Linvill, Clemson University
