This limited lesson in beginning journalism may help those with no prior experience or education in the field, but beware: It is short and very elementary, mainly about the slim basics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The number of omitted words in the first chapter alone makes the case that to be a successful journalist or author one needs competent editors and proofreaders -- or even just spell-check.
This author invokes the advice: "Get it right the first time." Then adds: "it's worth learning."
Yes it is.
