Entertainment writers are often faced with the challenge of reviewing an unfamiliar work. Whether movies or sculpture, art or architecture, this book guides the writer through the steps necessary to produce an acceptable review of these arts, as well as television, literature, drama, dance, and music.

Using current illustrations from a variety of newspapers, the author shows how the pros deal with the arts, as well as pointing out the problems students face in writing reviews. He also deals with the advance story, libel as it pertains to criticism, and the ethics of the business.

New in this edition is a chapter dealing with the arts writer as police reporter, as violence has moved into the popular music scene. The book also includes a suggested reading list for more information on each specific art form.
