HASH(0xa79cc108) out of 5 stars Easy to read. Gives modern real life examples Jan. 11 2012

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!

HASH(0xa7a93108) out of 5 stars A surprisingly enjoyable text book July 12 2010
By Sir SleepsNot - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa760c33c) out of 5 stars Decent interpersonal communication text June 20 2010
By Mark Youngkin - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa791e870) out of 5 stars Not life changing, but sort of life changing. June 20 2012
By Siren - Published on
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. :)

HASH(0xa78e9888) out of 5 stars Detrimental to my education June 29 2013
By brystler - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very little professional guidance for the topics presented. If anything it enlightens the individual how to be prejudice based on other individuals' characteristics. If the book chooses to present the topics covered it should present information acknowledging the frailities of humanity when presenting some of the research listed throughout the book; instead of presenting the material as "who we are" without a choice to rise above the cliche personality of a self-centered bigoted individual. Reading the text felt like I was being preached to by a social elitist and was offensive.
