The analysis is limited to a four page maximum [typed]. I am much
more concerned with your analysis of the book than
a recounting of everything the book said. Be as creative
and original as you feel is appropriate with the subject
matter. Various formats are possible: poems, short stories,
multi-media, additional chapters to book, etc. In other words,
whereas the other written assignments were more formal you have
license to do something that has meaning for you, that expresses
not reports. Satisfy yourself first and if it is good, more than
likely I’ll appreciate that as well. You may want to discuss some
applications the book has for you. be sure to do two thing (1)
provide an original response, as above, and (2) discuss
the application to Interpersonal Communication (this, of course, can be indirect, preferably not a listing of theory names) .
