At the same time, the world seems to be becoming more and more chaotic. The US at war on two fronts, violence is rampant and natural disasters seem to be occurring at a scarily increasing rate. The media is at a crossword, and it will either refocus and survive or dissolve into madness.
That's why Jody Santos' "Daring to Feel" is such an important and poignant read. For those of us working in the media industry, reading this book gives you a chance to reflect on your own experiences and perhaps reevaluate who we want to be as reporters, filmmakers and writers. For anyone who follows the news, and has wondered why reporters seem so hardened and detached, or who have question the credibility of a reporter who openly shows emotion on screen or paper, this book offers a unique look at how the news impacts those who bring it to you.
In "Daring to Feel" Santos does something unique, she draws from her own experiences, shares raw emotion with the reader, something that was once believed to be a cardinal sin for journalists. She does the same with those interviewed in the book, using their stories to show that perhaps there is a place for emotion in reporting.
I would recommend this book to any current journalism student, working reporter or news junkie. It offers a fresh perspective on journalism, something much needed in the ever changing media world today.
