4.0 out of 5 stars Good book about real journalists, 15 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ink in the Blood: Memoirs of a Regional Newspaperman (Paperback)
Britain's regional press, which reaches nearly every household in the land, is often overlooked or under-rated by the London-based media. But the truth is that some of the country's finest journalists work on its provincial titles, and Barrie Williams was undoubtedly one of them.
This book captures a born newspaperman's enthusiasm for an exciting and exacting craft and offers some valuable insights into life on local daily newspapers, many of which are regarded as the ultimate news source by their readers.
Williams was editor of three prominent regional titles in a career spanning more than 40 years. He was a council house kid fortunate enough to identify his forte early in life and be given the opportunity to pursue it with the help of several mentors he remembers fondly.
This book is a good read for any journalist, and even for those who read their work avidly every day. The author sometimes comes over as a bit cocky and boastful - but why shouldn't he?
