From the PublisherI knew within 10 minutes of opening this book I would adopt it for my multi-media/convergence course. It is a carefully crafted book written with grace. The new world of media is moving at break-neck speed and this is a book that helps all of us envision what the future can and will be. Although a complex and even controversial topic, Quinn and Filak explain, define and provide a great jumping off point for their readers into the world of convergence. The chapters are written by authors of power, credibility and good common sense. Best of all, my students like (that's right like) the book.
--Ralph Braseth is director of the fully converged student media center at the University of Mississippi and is assistant professor of journalism.
"...shows that writing a textbook about convergent journalism when most news media have yet to converge is not an easy endeavor, a combination of futurology and guesswork...It is also a worthy if not daring primer about the brave-new-world that awaits." - CBQ, Summer 2006
