"The best guide to getting started in online journalism."
Jyothi Kiran, The Hoot (www.thehoot.org)
"I have been evaluating textbooks about online journalism for three years now, and this is the first really good one I have found."
Mindy McAdams, Professor and Knight Chair in Journalism, University of Florida
"Each chapter attempts to demystify the subject matter before going on to offer concrete pointers, often using published examples... Nuggets are spread throughout the book, building the confidence of the reader and putting the so-called gurus in their place... The book as a whole should be made to feel as welcome in a steamy newsroom as a university library."
"Ward's years in teaching come into play in the meticulous care he takes in introducing new ideas and clarifying new terms."
Saif Shahin, British Journalism Review
"In the depth of its content, style of presentation and the utility and timeliness of its subject matter, it is a lot more than a training manual for would-be online journalists."
Saif Shahin, in the British Journalism Review
"Great book for beginners - and I think a few not-so-beginners might learn a trick or two as well. Students would do well to add it to their reading list."
