The expansive efforts of Judy Pearson, Paul Nelson, Scott Titsworth, and Lynn Harter prove to be a success in their textbook Human Communication, ISBN 9780073406800. Offering an intriguing look at the modern field of communication studies, this book takes a practical approach in presenting authoritative content as well as everyday application of skills. Coverage of material comes from the authors accessing hundreds of articles from renowned communication journals and organizing their findings so that they correlate with the challenges and goals of today's typical basic course. Various organizational features and instructional tools are integrated including skill-building activities, critical thinking questions, innovative pedagogy, as well as 21st century examples. The leading expert behind the efforts on Human Communication is that of Judy Pearson. She is currently serving as Associate Dean of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and Professor of Communication at North Dakota State University in Fargo, North Dakota. Pearson has co-authored 30 text and trade books and has also served as the President of the Central States Communication Association, the World Communication Association, and the National Communication Association. Judy Pearson, Paul Nelson, Scott Titsworth, and Lynn Harter chose to organize the concepts of Human Communication across three sections and 15 chapters. This book begins with part 1 offering coverage and topics surrounding the 'Fundamentals of Communication Studies' including perception, self, and communication, language and meaning, nonverbal communication, and listening and critical thinking. Part 2 tackles 'Communication Contexts' with chapters devoted to interpersonal, intercultural, and workplace communication, as well as the dynamics of small group communication. The book concludes with part 3 focusing on the 'Fundamentals of Public Speaking: Preparation and Delivery.' These final chapters focus on topic selection and audience analysis, source credibility and using evidence, organizing a presentation, delivery and visual resources, and finally informative and persuasive presentations.
