This is the text book I am reading for a course I am taking on public speaking. The text is interesting and the references are fascinating, but since it is required reading, I can't form an opinion as far as - did I enjoy it? This version of the book was a la Carte, which, in case you don't know, means it comes in loose leaf form and you have to put the pages in a binder. I would have preferred just a regular book. It's for school . . plenty of extra work without this hassle.
Fine for required textbook.
I bought this book instead of the official one I was supposed to use in my communication class. As it is just sheets of paper you don't have to carry the whole thing and can put it into a binder. I saved a lot of money and got pretty much the same content as the newer editions and ended up with an A as final grade in this class so it was worth it.
(it was shipped to me within a week and in good condition).
It was the right book, in decent condition considering a rental.
4 stars because i have not finished reading, but it is not a boring book,
it keeps the readers attention, and defines in exact terms.
i like the book for this reason, it also has ex. and photos.
(i guess i am a picture kind of person)
i would definitely recommend, of course if its required and just to have more
of a feel of what communication really is, and gain some confidence.
great argument builder for people who have to the nag to debate. :)
This book just arrived today as a rental and its actually a brand new book still sealed and everything. The amazon rental program has been a real money saver and not a single book we have gotten has been in unusable shape. If you are going back to school, dont hesitate to save yourself a lot of money and rent!
Looks like it went through war coffee on it, and just egh feel like I need gloves to use. So umm yeah would return if classes didn't start like tomorrow.
I was really excited to see this textbook on Amazon. I thought that the textbook publisher finally adopt the ebook format. However, this book is just a pdf wrapped inside an amazon format. That means if you want the text to appear bigger, you have to zoom in and scroll back and forth. And also the Kindle app does not work that great for this book comparing to other apps I have used for reading pdf.
It got me through my classes without spending an arm and a leg. Thanks
