"I like that interpersonal communication is explained as communication between people who have some sort of stake in one another. I can't help but think of what a difference it would make if all of our students thought of communication in this way. In like manner, to frame interpersonal communication as the intersection of self, Other and culture is really useful.... This book is making me think." -- Sarah Bonewits Feldner
"I believe students will relate extremely well to the writing. The fact that the authors offer up their stories gives this textbook a unique and welcomed quality that sets it above others. The text is accessible without being elementary, and the content is important and timely. I've been looking for a book that addresses the nuances of culture and takes a critical approach to communication, and I believe I've found it!" -- Sandy Pensoneau-Conway
