About the Book

Competent communication is a necessary component in achieving goals in all areas of life. In order to help students apply theoretical lessons to their own skills, In the Company of Others uses an organizing "communication competence model" to provide students with direction and guidance as they explore and improve their own communication processes.

Marked by J. Dan Rothwell's signature wit, this new edition engages students more than ever with its lively mixture of examples, anecdotes, and illustrations. Focusing on the contexts of interpersonal, small group, and public communication, the text integrates coverage of gender and culture and technology throughout. The book also features distinctive coverage of power, treating it as a central variable within all communication.
