Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The best book I've read on journalism in the digital era. It's comprehensive without becoming ponderous. It should become the standard text for journalism students."--Eric Chatterjee, Northern Kentucky University

"I love that attention is paid to issues like usability, navigation, and the audience. Too often those issues are left out of textbooks."--Jennifer Mackay, Virginia Tech

"I love this book. I would not hesitate to adopt this text for use in multimedia classes or workshops. It is well organized, and complete but concise. The greatest strength of this text is the balance between principle and practice, and the two are integrated well. I also loved the integration of support comments from working professionals and academics that George-Palilonis includes throughout the book. This provides another level of legitimacy to the material she presents."--Linda Menck, Marquette University
