Book Description

Now in its eighth edition, Thinking Through Communication provides a balanced introduction to the fundamental theories and principles of communication. It explores communication in a variety of contexts—from interpersonal to group to mass media—and can be used in both theoryand skills-based courses. With a dynamic approach, Trenholm helps students to develop a better understanding of communication as a field of study, as well as its practical applications.
