Sport Communication: An Interpersonal Approach is the first book of its kind. Dealing with the interpersonal communication between various positions in sports opens up a vast array of studies between parent-coach, coach-player, player-player, and in the team as a whole.

Designed for upper-level undergraduate courses, Sports Communication: An Interpersonal Approach targets students, players, coaches, parents of athletes, and team managers/owners alike.  More than a traditional case book that uses imaginary cases, Sport Communication: An Interpersonal Approach uses shared “cases” from literature, television, movies, and history, all of the nuances and richness of character, context, and even nonverbal communication to help readers understand and analyze the case.

Set to be released in print and eBook versions, Sports Communication: An Interpersonal Approach:

  • Provides a multidisciplinary approach by drawing from communication, psychology, and business
  • Is the most modern sports and media text on the market! The publication includes examples from literature, television, movies, and historical texts to illustrate the connection of theory and the communication outcomes that are influenced.
  • Is a good resource not only for students, but for anyone participating in sports.
