Book Description

Nov. 3 2008 0073406643 978-0073406640 1
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read. Gives modern real life examples Jan. 11 2012
By jangel192000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The website (located on the back cover) is great and gives the chapter overview, flash cards for vocabulary, and quizes for each chapter. I found it a great study source. The book was easy to understand, and very interesting. It gives examples of key ideas that are modern and easy to relate to. There are practice tests at the end of each chapter and most vocab is in bold font. Overall one of the best text books I have used!

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly enjoyable text book July 12 2010
By Sir SleepsAlot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most text books are usually dry, and not an enjoyable read.
This book really surprised me, as it is enjoyable, easy to read and laid out in a way that makes it interesting without being overwhelming.
The author does a good job of presenting multiple sides of each area and formats the book in a nice way.
Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent interpersonal communication text June 20 2010
By Mark Youngkin - Published on Amazon.com
I taught from this book from January through May and it got decent, but not great, reviews from my students. McGraw Hill provided solid support for instructors. I don't know if I'll be using it again, but I'm glad to have Floyd's insights for the next class I teach on this subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not life changing, but sort of life changing. June 20 2012
By Siren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not that my life is turned around by reading this book, but I definitely took a lot from this book that I can apply to my social relationships and to myself. I ordered it for a class and ended up reading through the entire thing before the assignments for each chapter were even released. It's a fantastic read and I love how succinct and detailed Floyd is in his writing and his explanations. I've always been the level-headed advice-giver in my circles of friends, but this helped me to provide some more thorough backup for my arguments and suggestions, and gave me more insight into how to handle individual situations. It definitely did what it wanted to do, and improved the way I communicate with others.

I truly wish that they made ALL Americans read this book during high school, because the information in it is stupendous and invaluable. And if more people read books like this and applied what they learned, we'd be dealing with a far less volatile and egocentric society. :)
