A forum for users of any of my texts but really for anyone interested in interpersonal communication, the fundamentals of human communication, and public speaking.
The cost of textbooks
There’s an interesting item about textbooks in Morreale’s Mailbag—my favorite feature in Spectra (it’s in the current issue, October 2005). Apparently, the price of textbooks has risen at a rate double that of inflation over the last 20 years. The reason? Supplementary items like computer software have driven up the cost.
