Communication in Relationships Book Review:

It is easy to communicate. Right? Well, wrong! Any communication that does not generate the desired response can hardly be considered effective. Communities have gone to war, empires have crumbled, businesses have gone under and marriages have hit the rocks as a result of a breakdown in communication or a lack of effective communication. In Communication in Relationships, Bimbo Odukoya, an internationally acclaimed marriage counsellor, addresses the intricacies of relationships, focussing on verbal communication, non-verbal communication, listening and communication styles, as she proffers solutions to numerous marital and relationship problems. If your relationships are not working, the reason may well be that you are not communicating effectively. This book is a must-read. Pastor Bimbo Odukoya was the co-pastor of The Fountain of Life Church, Lagos-a church that is committed to raising leaders, and was the president of Single & Married, a ministry that has been widely acclaimed for preparing youths and couples for fulfilling and lasting relationships. Her popular television programme Single & Married is still being broadcast on several stations across Africa, Canada and the United Kingdom, long after her passing on to glory in December 2005. She was also the chairperson of Discovery for Women, a ministry dedicated to inspiring women in their roles as mothers and leaders. A highly-sought-after speaker, she ministered on practically every Nigerian university and polytechnic campus. This was in addition to running regular columns in several newspapers and magazines. She received numerous awards, including a couple of honorary doctorates, in recognition of her contributions to the society. She was married to Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and blessed with three children.

Interpersonal Communication in Friend and Mate Relationships Book Review:

A concentration on communication processes is essential to sorting out fundamental problems in interpersonal relationships. This book provides a general theory of the role of communication in interpersonal relationships that is grounded in the rules perspective and focuses on self-concept and interaction as the generative mechanisms of relationship formation and growth. The authors explore the kind of information that is exchanged in the process of initiating, developing, and maintaining friend and mate relationships. Both types of relationships are explored in numerous cultural settings--including America and American subcultures as well as Korea, Nigeria, Japan, and China. The inclusion of Nigerian culture is particularly significant because the research literature in interpersonal communication is lacking any information from the continent of Africa. Implications are then considered for communication exchange across three categories of interpersonal communication--culture, conflict, and quality.

The Dark Side of Interpersonal Communication Book Review:

The Dark Side of Interpersonal Communication examines the multifunctional ways in which seemingly productive communication can be destructive--and vice versa--and explores the many ways in which dysfunctional interpersonal communication operates across a variety of personal relationship contexts. This second edition of Brian Spitzberg and William Cupach's classic volume presents new chapters and topics, along with updates of several chapters in the earlier edition, all in the context of surveying the scholarly landscape for new and important avenues of investigation. Offering much new content, this volume features internationally renowned scholars addressing such compelling topics as uncertainty and secrecy in relationships; the role of negotiating self in cyberspace; criticism and complaints; teasing and bullying; infidelity and relational transgressions; revenge; and adolescent physical aggression toward parents. The chapters are organized thematically and offer a range of perspectives from both junior scholars and seasoned academics. By posing questions at the micro and macro levels, The Dark Side of Interpersonal Communication draws closer to a perspective in which the darker sides and brighter sides of human experience are better integrated in theory and research. Appropriate for scholars, practitioners, and students in communication, social psychology, sociology, counseling, conflict, personal relationships, and related areas, this book is also useful as a text in graduate courses on interpersonal communication, ethics, and other special topics.

Inside the Digital Revolution Book Review:

In this work, Bridgette Wessels offers a unique insight into the ways in which core public institutions and powerful organizations develop digital communications and services within the public realm. The book draws on her ethnographic research with the London Metropolitan Police Service during their engagement in an innovative project to improve communication with the public using digital technology. As one of the largest, most advanced and highly respected police services in the world, working in a socially, culturally and demographically complex city, the Metropolitan Police Service offers a highly revealing case study of technology and the human processes which it is designed to serve. The ethnographic research is used to develop a new theoretical and conceptual framework for understanding the relationship between social action and technological change, addressing the way in which technology is socially shaped and culturally informed. The book also discusses the role of ethnography as a tool for researching complex multi-perspective, multi-sited networks of the innovation of digital technologies as forms of communication in late modern western society.
