I used this book as a text for an Investigative Reporting class at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale where I am journalist-in-residence. The book has many wonderful bits of information and it is written in a way that is easy to understand. At 128 pages, people might actually read it. One of my students said 'It is the kind of book, that I enjoy reading, I sell most of my textbooks, I'll keep this one.' Try it, you'll like it.Was this review helpful?
