I bought this book years ago, and still refer to it today. I am the editor of a weekly newspaper and it always helps each year with budget stories to review the formulas for percentages and whatnot. Everyone in the newsroom likes to use it. Handy little book.

It's a pleasure to read a math book written with the journalist in mind. Every section contains something useful for journalists, from how to properly handle numbers in your text to how to figure property taxes. It belongs on every journalist's desk.

I bought this book because it was required for one of my courses. To be honest we never used the book in class and I haven't read it, but my professor knows her stuff and was a really big fan of this book.

I have gone through the book Math Tools for Journalists and am envigored by
what I have seen.
The book offers a brief, to-the-point, clear explanation of some basic math
points for journalists as well as for the average person. I appreciate the
inclusion of basic math computations, statistics, business concepts, etc. The
summation of useful formulas at the end of the text is a nice touch as well.
The Skill Drills at the end of each section is very helpful, and it's great to
have an answer key as well. Also impressive is the inclusion of actual news
articles for each section demonstrating how journalists have used the math
concept covered by the chapter in their reporting.
I have a fairly strong math background (relatively speaking, for a
communications professional) and yet have found the text helpful in reviewing
some basic math principles. In addition, I have learned concepts I feel I have
needed to understand for some time just by going over the text and seeing the
simply stated explanations.

Math Tools for Journalists is definitely a handy-guide for any beginning journalist!
