For courses in Introduction to Communication

A five-principles approach that helps students build practical communication skills

Revel® Communication: Principles for a Lifetime was designed to address the biggest challenge when teaching Introduction to Communication: how to present the variety of fundamental theories and skills without overwhelming learners. By organizing the text around five key principles of communication, authors Steven Beebe, Susan Beebe, and Diana Ivy help students to see the interplay among communication concepts, skills, and contexts. The 8th Edition offers new Critical/Cultural Perspectives features that examine contemporary issues in communication and refreshed chapter-ending study guides that better reinforce the authors' five-principles approach.

Revel empowers students to actively participate in learning. More than a digital textbook, Revel delivers an engaging blend of author content, media, and assessment. With Revel, students read and practice in one continuous experience, anytime, anywhere, on any device. Learn more about Revel.
