Summary
    A Practical Introduction to Communication for Community College and Beyond provides community college students with a highly relatable and applied exploration of communication. Students gain a solid understanding of the process of communication and how to apply it to everyday life situations.

    This book is broken into three sections. Section 1 discusses the process of communication, including tools that influence behavior, how to become a better listener, and different types of non-verbal practices. Section 2 dives into relationships and intercultural communication. This section addresses Uncertainty Reduction Theory and the Moken People, who have, historically, had limited contact with the outside world, but now, with increasing accessibility to communication, must navigate the line between traditional and contemporary modes of communication. Section 3 delves into how professional and public communication go hand-in-hand, including tips for networking, understanding and working in groups, and preparing presentations. The text includes skills assessments, personal accounts, and best practices to help students understand and apply various communication strategies.

    A Practical Introduction to Communication for Community College and Beyond is ideal for undergraduate courses in human communication, public relations, and introduction to communication studies.
    The Second Edition will be published Spring 2020.
