Top Customer Reviews
"Entrepreneurial Journalism" is a must read for anyone interested in learning what it takes to succeed in the age of digital news. This practical guide to start-up news ventures details exactly what you need to know in order to design a product that works. From the technical aspects to the business side, this book will answer all your questions. It's an easy read that's filled with stories from people who have launched their own news sources, and made money along the way. And while there's still much left to be learned in the field of online news, this book will definitely put you ahead of the game.
I can say without hesitation that "Entrepreneurial Journalism" was just the motivation I needed to begin the process of building my own site. I owe a lot to this little book, and I highly, highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in how digital journalism will grow and prosper in the 21st century.
I highly recommend "Entrepreneurial Journalism" and also suggest you look at Briggs' "JournalismNext" if you're interested in multimedia storytelling.
The book is extremely well-researched and dense with insightful and necessary information, much like a textbook (the author [Briggs] states he's a college professor). However, it is much more reasonably priced that most textbooks and reads much more interestingly.
Overall, I highly recommend this book.
