Overview

A writing instructor, former editor-in-chief of Writer's Digest and author of The Craft of Interviewing (1976), Brady outlines practical guidance for getting great quotes. He includes anecdotes, tips, and techniques illustrated by plentiful examples from print and broadcast journalism. A sampling of his topics shows the pragmatism of his approach: gathering background before an interview, the art of listening, conquering shyness (in both interviewer and interviewee), going off the record, dealing with liars, the problem with PR, and conducting an e-mail interview. He concludes with a lengthy list of questions that interviewers can fall back on to make a connection with their subject. The Writer Books is an imprint of Kalmbach Trade Press; distributed by Watson-Guptill. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
