Communication: Principles for a Lifetime presents an accessible overview of the fundamental theories and skills of communication. By organizing the text around 5 key principles of communication, authors Steven Beebe, Susan Beebe and Diana Ivy help you explore the interplay among communication concepts, skills and contexts. And this 5-principles approach helps you build practical communication skills.
The 8th Edition offers new Critical/Cultural Perspectives features that examine contemporary issues in communication. Refreshed chapter-ending study guides better reinforce the authors' 5-principles approach. And fresh, contemporary examples, photos and illustrations enhance key themes and help you relate course content to your own life.
