PRAISE FOR DAVID HENDERSON

"Public relations is never as easy as it looks. So you are lucky to be reading this book, for few know PR as well as David Henderson. A skilled correspondent and a gifted man, David knows both sides of the process of delivering a message."

-Harry Smith

CBS News

"Great advice and a much-needed reality check for anyone who works with the media. Follow David's guidelines and save yourself a lot of time and energy"

-Jean Cochran

National Public Radio

"David Henderson has worked both sides of the street-as a reporter and an advocate. He has that double advantage of knowing a story and knowing how to sell it."

-Richard Serrano

Los Angeles Times

There are so many mediocre books on media relations, that it's a true pleasure to come across one that lives up to the claim on its cover. David Henderson's publisher bills Making News a "straight-shooting guide to media relations" and the book delivers.

-Paul Holmes,
