5.0 out of 5 stars This book taught me so much! January 25, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I’m currently studying journalism, and this book is the best book on journalism that I have ever read! It’s so much better (and cheaper) than journalism textbooks. I learned so much about the history of the craft and journalism values. The book also discusses article writing in theoretical and practical terms. Not only do I better understand what features, news, editorials and blogs are but I also learned how to write them in a way that will attract readers. This book also helps me understand the current state of journalism like the financial and ideological difficulties that newspaper and magazine publishers are going through.

Even though the book is packed with lots of great information, the tone is light and the author is funny and hip. In addition to examining classic literature and publications, he references popular culture and samples edgy publications too. Moreover, he draws journalism lessons from other fields like finance, psychology and medicine. Really cool insights ...

I was really excited that the author devoted a lot of time and space to interviews with people like Roy Peter Clark, Dave Barry and Andrew McCarthy. The author didn’t cut their input short, and the long quotations were fascinating.
The section on style summarized so many tips that I’ve read about in style guides but had trouble integrating. I’ve been using the style section to write papers in my coursework.

Finally, I want to freelance someday and this book offers some great tips on how to hook up with sites like Mediabistro or Writer’s Digest.
This book is great for everybody from the budding writer to the veteran journalist. This book taught me so much!

Just a great buy—totally worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This books is a must for high school or college! February 3, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my College son who is writing for his schools newspaper. He tells me this book has been very helpful and uses it to proof read his articles. To my surprise, my high school daughter is also using it to improve her writing skills. She is taking AP Literature in high school, and her teacher said her improvement in writing has gone up from struggling to mastering. I never thought this book would help so much. I have never written reviews but I felt I needed to spread the word about this book. Its very easy to understand and follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough and browse-able! January 29, 2014
Format:Paperback
Not very many books on writing will have such great organization and writing. I find myself constantly flipping to pages to get some (very) helpful advice on everything from setting up interview logistics to writing strong leads to pitching. The author doesn't dumb anything down, but it's all still really comprehensible.

I keep it on the desk as a reference, and I reach for it more often than any of my style guides. Like other reviewers, I especially appreciated THE INTERVIEWS. They're extensive and the variety of sources Saleh uses to back up what he writes help stress just how important each concept or idea is. I've come to use the book very, very regularly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!!! January 23, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was interested in learning how to write better so I bought this book. The first section on style changed the way that I think about writing. For instance, I didn’t know that there was a difference among words such as continuous/continual, if/whether, between/among, and more. I also learned more about punctuation and grammar. The sections on journalism were very interesting and would definitely help somebody who wanted to learn more about news articles, feature articles, opinion articles and blogs. For me, I see a positive change in my written communication. Thanks to the author!

I found this full of useful ideas on how to put in place a 'production line' for articles. I don't recall him expressing it this way but I'd summarise the main point as being, '...if you can write one article on a topic, you can write many...' He then provides some ideas, which are not rocket science but simple good sense, on how to put yourself in a position to do so. If you're to produce volume for online article submission sites, while not sacrificing quality, these ideas make sense.
