A unique take on interpersonal communication, Looking Out, Looking In by Adler and Proctor effectively integrates the principles of communication with practical situations in everyday life. It offers an engaging, reader-friendly approach that is both teachable and easy to learn. The book lays down the importance of honing and developing one's interpersonal communication skills while mastering how to impart and exchange information. Adler and Proctor impressively integrate interpersonal communication with cultural aspects like art, music, and television. Looking Out, Looking In (ISBN 9780495796213) offers insights about identity and the self, perception and emotions, and how language can be both a bridge that connects people and a barrier that hinders such connections. The book also talks about nonverbal communication and how messages can be conveyed in the absence of words. There is a chapter dedicated to listening, and another for relational dynamics. Other topics covered include relational communication, distance and intimacy, and how to improve communication climates. The last chapter deals with interpersonal conflicts and how to manage them. Author Ron Adler is an expert in interpersonal communication, communication theories, and business and professional communication. Aside from his career as a reputable professor and public speaking coach, he has also edited and co-authored a good range of textbooks about organizational communication. Russell Proctor II, Adler's co-author, is a professor at Northern Kentucky University. Proctor has been with the university since 1991, mainly teaching basic and advanced courses in interpersonal communication. He has been recognized for his excellent teaching abilities and is also known for his researches on communication education.
