5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Beat It 3 Jun 2002
By "deblock" - Published on Amazon.com
While I can't actually comment on the current edition, I'd like to say that this is the same book I used 18 years ago in college and it was excellent. I still have my copy and refer to it occasionally when I'm covering an area that I don't handle often. The authors are from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, one of the top journalism schools in the country because most of the faculty have real-world, hands-on experience. This book today is used in hundreds of journalism classes around the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the Classroom! 16 Jun 2004
By D. Milbrandt - Published on Amazon.com
I used "News Reporting and Writing" when I studied journalism in college. Upon returning to the college classroom to teach journalism, I introduced my students to the latest edition of this wonderful text. The book provides an excellent introduction to the various elements of good journalism and is perfect for a beginning or advanced course on reporting and writing. I recommend it highly!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great journalism tool 23 Jun 2000
By Luci Fortune - Published on Amazon.com
News Reporting and Writing is an excellent tool for aspiring journalists. It is very easy to read and right on the money, as far as content. It covers everything from writing a catchy lead for your stories to a step-by-step process for interviewing. The book also has sidebars that emphasize the important elements in each chapter. I would recommend this book to not only anyone interested in journalism, but to anyone interested in learning how to write better.

I needed this book asap for one of my classes but didn't want to pay a higher price for a Prime book so I took a gamble in ordering this one. Got it in less than a week, so worth it!! Great seller!
