Interpersonal Communication: Relating to Others introduces the key principles of interpersonal communication alongside practical suggestions on how to become a better communicator. Authors Steven Beebe, Susan Beebe and Mark Redmond help you learn how to become other-oriented: a mindful process of considering the thoughts, needs, feelings and values of others, rather than focusing exclusively on oneself.

The 9th Edition offers new #communicationandsocialmedia features that discuss the ways in which social media is changing how we relate to and interact with others. And the inclusion of fresh examples and new research throughout the text ensures an up-to-date and relevant learning experience.
