Recenzii

Close Encounters is a great text for undergraduate students. The authors manage to balance breadth and depth; the book presents a variety of interpersonal topics and each topic is explored thoroughly, with relevant, up-to-date research.”

Close Encounters is a text that makes heavy theories easy to grasp yet pushes our students to greater lengths of critical examination of their interpersonal relationships.”

“This book is an excellent resource for any learner interested in knowing more about the research, theories, and ideas studied by interpersonal communication scholars. Not only can students develop a solid foundation about the field from this text, but they can frequently refer back as they deepen their understanding.”


“This text engages relationship research and theorizing to illuminate the complex experiences embedded in close relationships.”

Close Encounters is a solid, well-written, and well-organized textbook for interpersonal communication.”
