Editorial Reviews


"This is an extraordinarily useful text. The authors demonstrate the ability to explain philosophical issues simply and clearly, yet with remarkable depth. They also offer superb coverage of the reflection that good practitioners engage in and the nuts and bolts of craft. I recommend this book unequivocally as a cornerstone text for introductory reporting courses, with or without a civic or public orientation."--Lewis A. Friedland, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"This book provides a great introduction to reporting. The authors show how the principles of civic journalism can be put into practice in the reporter's everyday work, and offer many helpful tips that could only have come from experienced practitioners. The final chapters are exceptional in their coverage of current trends and innovations, including literary journalism and computer-assisted journalism."--Hugh Morgan, Miami University, Oxford, OH

"If you were going to redesign America's troubled practice of journalism from the bottom up, this would be the blueprint. The authors have combined theory and practice in an accessible and pragmatic book that sets journalism students off on the right track for 21st-century needs and circumstances."--Davis "Buzz" Merritt, author of Public Journalism and Public Life

"At last! A basic newswriting textbook that tells students why their work as journalists matters. Cheryl Gibbs and Tom Warhover's beautifully written book features top-notch writing instruction and imaginative exercises. But, more important, it explains how journalism, when done well, can help sustain our sense of community and citizenship. The Whole Story is a groundbreaking accomplishment."--John Pauly, Department of Communication, Saint Louis University

"This engaging introductory text covers the fundamentals of news reporting in a way that inspires as well as instructs aspiring journalists. Getting the Whole Story is striking in its breadth, providing sensible reporting advice that spans from the basic '5 Ws' to consideration of news frames and journalism as a collaborative enterprise. But what really distinguishes this text is its focus on how journalism can make a difference in people's lives. Without being preachy, the authors integrate the values and practices of civic journalism with traditional news-gathering strategies. The result is a practical text that seeks to nurture journalism's highest qualities."--Scott R. Maier, School of Journalism and Communication, University of Oregon
