Source Text: The Basics of Communicationhttp://images.cqout.com/Books/9781412981095.jpghttp://large.snazal.com/?9781412981095Steve Duck David T McMahan97814129810959781412981095Media > Books43.06The Basics of Communication"The relational theme that the authors set up as a the novelty in an introductory textbook is what would prompt me to adopt it. . . . Something that makes this textbook different is the personal approach that Duck and McMahan use. They address the students as if they were talking to them. . . . Furthermore, the family communication and identity chapters are very appealing and not a common feature among textbooks." (David Chronet-Roses 20080820)"Every chapter presents a variety of materials and issue from communication, psychology, sociology, applied linguistics, and other social sciences and humanities. I have never seen such an interdisciplinary-oriented textbook." ? (Masahiro Masuda 20080820)"It is a fresh, new approach that will make conversations with students quite rich!" (Erin Sahlstein 20080820)"Duck and McMahan's attempt to integrate a relational component to all communication contexts cleverly integrates communication, theory and practice, with psychology, theory and practice." (Michael Elkins 20080820)"This is an excellent text for the instructor frustrated with simple and simplistic renderings of communication as merely the skill of self-expression. It challenges both the instructor and the students to set aside what they have been taught by their culture and their media and to reconsider why we think of communication in individualistic terms and how that dominant framework shapes the relationships we engage and maintain."? (Lance Brendan Young 20080820)"This book is entertaining yet relevant, helps instructors connect with their students, and demonstrates the significance of communication as both everyday performance and scholarly endeavor."? (Branislav Kovacic 20080820)"This text is really the first to take advantage of theory and research that focus on the role of communication, relating, and dialogue in everyday life. The central strength is the focus on the dynamic betweenness of human communication, and how communication, relationships, and social structures are constituted and reconstituted in everyday life." (Larry Erbert 20080820)I would welcome the opportunity to use this text based on the conversational writing style of the authors, the balance between theory and application of this information to daily relationships, and the end of chapter features for discussion. (Ann Marie Jablonowski 20080820)"An in-depth basic communication text with easy to understand examples for each topic area."? (Quinton Davis 20080820)"I think that this may be the best book on the basics of communication in terms of organization and relationship between theory and reality, bravo to the authors for their fine work." (Brian Cogan 20080820)"Specific applications allow students to experience the theories. This facilitates learning and allows students to improve their communication competencies." (Kevin Cummings 20080821)"This text provides a fantastic combination of engaging students while challenging them to think about their lives, and communication, in an insightful way. There are several outlets for the students to apply their new ideas and theories in an environment that guides them to understanding." (Tracy Routsong 20080821)"This refreshing intro text is readable and interesting with comprehensive coverage." (Pam Secklin 20080821)The strengths of this text are the real world examples, interactive features, and humble mode of address through narrative and self-disclosure. (Robert Bodle 20080821)"A comprehensive hybrid text that includes features that will resonate with multiple learning needs." (Annette Holba 20080821)"The Basics of Communication: A Relational Perspective is more than a basic textbook. This book is an excellent hybrid for those professors who like to introduce basic communication concepts and theory to students along with some instruction on giving presentations." (Laura Oliver 20080821)"Duck and McMahan have done everything in their power to compose a textbook that is not only thorough and informative, but which students will also be able to REALLY relate to." (Thomas Harkins 20080821)"The strengths of this book include the ease of reading, relevant examples and everyday experiences used to help explain concepts, and the discussion of the various selves or ways in which we perform identity." (Lori Johnson 20080821)"This book is written in a conversational tone and incorporates many recent research findings in the chapter, and it also provides some useful classroom activities." (Yinjiao Ye 20080821)"It is a well written and comprehensive introductory treatment of key issues in communication studies." (Rick Olsen 20080821)"Students should be able to relate readily to this book with its easy to understand writing style which doesn't get bogged down in the author's own sense of self-importance." (Richard West 20080821)"Duck and McMahan have a text that explains to students basic theories and practices of the communication discipline in a manner that reflects the communication experiences these students have encountered in their daily lives. This is more than a book of theoretical ideas and practical advice; it is a book that tells the students 'this is what it means for you.'" (David Tschida 20080821)"The writing is crisp, clear, serious, jocular, and nuanced with simplicity and complexity. And all this at the same time! The authors' voice comes through beautifully."? (Avinash Thombre 20080821)"Excellent! The authors were able to convey exactly the description of the course I try to teach!!" (Jeffrey Pierson 20080908)"Thorough, appropriate for the diversity of our population." (Jean Dewitt 20080908)The writing style of the Duck/McMahan textbook is more conversational and in first person, welcoming an informal style where one can relate. . . . I like how it uses examples that relates to everyday life. . . . It invites me to learn new things about the inner self and others around you. I like how it intertwines sociological and psychological concepts along with the idea of communication. (Student 20080908)Key strengths include good comparisons, such as the onion, to model the idea of revealing ourselves to others; informative and thoroughly explains concepts so students can understand key terms; excellent end of chapter features to help students analyze what they have just learned from the chapter. (Student 20080908)It was like I was having a conversation with my textbook. I for once understood what the text was saying, and wanted to continue reading further. It did not seem like a chore to have read. I learned a lot about the chapter and also about myself as I read this chapter! (Student 20080908)This really doesnt seem like a textbook! Its something easy to read and understand. Its also not one of those textbooks where you dread reading it and put it off till the last minute. I know that if this was my new textbook I would read it first because you are gaining a lot of valuable information. (Student 20080908)It is much easier to relate to than my current text book is. It seems as if it was written with the students in mind. (Student 20080908)I felt that it challenged me to learn more about what an identity is and to understand the definitions of your symbolic self, accountability self accountability, etc. (Student 20080908)I think even students outside of the communication field can appreciate the information and how it applies in their life. (Student 20080908)This is a book that I would ask my instructor to use in the course. . . . It relates to all audiences and gives real life examples. (Student 20080908)The tone and up-to-date examp
