Developing Friendships Making friends is one of the most crucial factors in our life. You need to learn how to read people and their personalities. You don’t want people to think that you’re not interesting, or that you’re way to interesting. Here are three ways that can help you make friends easier. When you first meet a person, you have to figure out how your going to approach that person and introduce yourself, and if you would like to be friends with that person. If your in the work place you would naturally approach them and talk to them about sports or maybe their hobbies. In the last eight weeks, we have learned that interpersonal communication is a process. Griffin begins his book with this and tries to use different sports and games to show what communication IS and what it is NOT.

Great book for my Communications Class. I learned a lot through the concepts and will refer to this in the future.

I'm not an easy person to get along with and I don't like most people (what can I say, I'm easily annoyed). This book made a lot of sense and I've started to be able to get along better with others. Sometimes you just gotta learn to go with the flow.

A lot of great insight from a Christian perspective, but it is applicable for anyone. Relationships are important. This book helps you understand better your friendships and how to invest in them.
This book was used as a text for Speech. I enjoyed his anectdotel stories and fresh approach, but the integrationist approach and defense of self-esteem were unimppressive.
