Editorial Reviews

Review

“During my eight years as editor of Cleveland’s Plain Dealer, I speed-dialed Marburger’s phone number whenever
an access problem loomed. Access with Attitude isn’t quite that, but it’s the next best thing. It belongs on every bookshelf
in Ohio.”
— Doug Clifton, former editor, Plain Dealer


 “Access with Attitude is a practical and insightful guide for dealing with an issue that vexes journalists across the state: how to hold governments accountable. Marburger and Idsvoog have created a useful reference for those forced to play an increasingly costly and time-consuming game of hide-and-seek with the public’s information.”
— David Giles, attorney, The E. W. Scripps Company

 


“I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to read Access with Attitude. The legal advice is invaluable, but what sets the book apart are the practical tips. I recommend it to lawyers, publishers, editors reporters and anyone interested in government transparency.”
— Jack Greiner, outside cousel to the Cincinnati Enquirer

 


Access with Attitude provides every citizen, every journalist, every lawyer and every government office with a clear and straightforward guide to making Ohio’s Public Records Act work. Anyone who is contemplating making a request for government records will benefit from its clear and insightful suggestions. You’ll write a better request and get the records you seek with greater speed and ease if you follow these authors’ advice. If you are going to have one book about how to access government records in Ohio, then Marburger and Idsvoog’s Access with Attitude is the one you want on your shelf.”
— Susan Gilles, John E. Sullivan Designated Professor of Law, Capital University Law School
 


“Access with Attitude is not just a road map. It’s more like a GPS, with pinpoint directions on the best way to get the records you need…and why you should not take ‘no’ for an answer.”
— Jeff Hirsch, WKRC-TV, Cincinnati


“Access with Attitude is a long-needed book that goes a long way toward leveling the playing field between governed and government. This valuable resource should find a home on the bookshelf—or e-reader—of journalists, public officials, lawyers who represent government clients and anyone with an interest in transparency.”
— Randy Ludlow, reporter, The Columbus Dispatch


“Every Ohioan who cares about government and the public’s right to know should read this book.”
— Brent Larkin

Format: Paperback
An indispensable guide to navigating the weird, difficult shoals of Ohio's open records laws. As more exceptions get lathered onto what started as good laws, and as Supreme Court decisions narrow definitions even more, the book helps readers understand the workings of the laws and offers common-sense strategies for winning in court in a difficult environment.

This should be required reading for all Ohio journalists, attorneys and community activists. I am an attorney of 35+ years and found this book to be insightful, well-organized and well-written. It was an awesome book!
