Editorial Reviews

Review

"Well documented and researched, this is required reading for anyone interested in journalism and media analysis, including policy wonks, whose work is criticism. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers." - Choice

Review

"This straight-talking book places the audience -- indeed, the individual -- at the center, and bids journalists to do the same. We'd be well advised to listen."

Yes, I had to buy this book for Rachel's class. Yes, I think she's an excellent professor. Those disclaimers out of the way, I have used and referenced the concepts, quotes and theories espoused in this book at both jobs I've had since I left the graduate journalism program at Northwestern's Medill School. As a digital strategist who works on audience development, this has been an invaluable tool (combined with having taken the class, of course). Buy this book and keep it at your office when you're done with school. It's not light, fun beach reading, but it's not supposed to be (which might be a shock if you've sat in Rachel's class and heard her hysterical stories.) This is the stark reality of journalism's downward spiral and the directive on how to keep journalism alive that you'll need to convince your ink-stained wretch coworkers to stop complaining and start making audience-based decisions to save this profession.

The book itself is actually good but I don't appreciate how on the Kindle version the publisher has limited the number of highlights for this book to 277 and prevented me from viewing any of my highlights at kindle.amazon.com. I have been reading this book for research and this is an inconvenience. I am very disappointed by these unecessary limits.
