Nov 04, Mr. Sterner rated it liked it A good introduction to the basics of journalism, but horrifically overpriced. Your best bet is to find it used. Written humorously but still giving us the inverted pyramid of information, he illustrated points with punny character names such as Robin Banks.

In a story about a crook robbing banks. They always made our class laugh, or groan. Personally, I cracked up every time. I regret renting this baby as I am going on to Journalism 2. Brief without skipping important information, Harrower addresses broadcast news, the history of news, how the internet impacts news, reporting for disasters, ethics and laws for reporters, and much more.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone if only for them to learn more about the news industry. Mar 05, Victoria rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Journalists Shelves: journalism One of the best journalism books I ever read in college.

The easy to read magazine layout of the book was perfect. Along with the main text of the book sub sections and side bars of supplemental material added a perfect amount of various material. Quotes, lists, and interesting side stories were supplies in a great format.
