A must have
on 11 January 2012
Simon Rogers, one of the team behind the extremely popular Datablog from the Guardian newspaper, has written a fantastic book that gives you a tour around the world of data journalism. As he says in the book, it's not new - but it is a lot more easily accessible. It's the book that has to be in the bag of any journalist - not just aspiring ones. Data is there fore everyone to see, use and exploit. At the end of the day, news is still story form - but this book will show you how to get the stories from the data, and how to present it in a way that makes the most of what you have.
