Written for students of human relations, communication, and speech, Interpersonal Communication: Everyday Encounters by Julia T. Wood is an excellent resource that discusses the key principles and concepts of interpersonal communication and how they are used in a multicultural society. This textbook discusses communication in the context of social diversity and ethics, showing why it is essential to everyday living and not just in the classroom. Communication: Everyday Encounters (ISBN 9780495567646) covers topics such as communication and the creation of self, perception and communication, the world of words, the world beyond words, and mindful listening. In the second half of the book, the author focuses on emotions and communication, communication climate (the foundation of personal relationships, managing conflict in relationships, friendship in our lives, and committed romantic relationships). Though it is mainly used for college courses, this book can also be used for anyone who wants to develop interpersonal skills for work. This updated 6th edition comes with a supplementary CD-ROM technology and access to online resources to suit the needs of today's digital classrooms. Author Julia T.
