It will resonate with the 21st century student.''--Archie Wortham, Northeast Lakeview College ''Like the title states, this is the essential communication of our time, and the text is chock-full of contemporary, relevant examples and illustrations of the theories we ask our students to come to and understand.''--Susan Carol Stinson, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University ''This text discusses the prominent theories across various contexts, highlighting the relational aspect of communication.
