Essentials of Human Communication: The Basic Course is a unique blend of author Joseph DeVito's previous comprehensive and brief Introduction to Communication titles. Combining the best of both texts, the 11th Edition is designed to help you achieve competence in interpersonal, group and public communication.
Like its predecessors, the 11th Edition explains the core theories, research and skills of communication, highlighting practical applications in the workplace and beyond. The text includes fresh coverage of contemporary topics such as lying and nonverbal communication, types of friendship, and social allergens. Several new speeches and speech excerpts provide up-to-date examples.
