Format: Paperback
Covers all the basics that are often forgotten by students/trainees in the rush for media stardom. Helpful and informative.

Format: Paperback
with every page i become more irritated that i wasted good money on this book. there are pages and pages of irrelevant tosh such as a whole page dedicated to a list of things you should keep in your car (cans of drink, mars bar, mobile phone...)! it is patronising beyond belief and the tone is often very insulting to the reader, inviting us to join with the writer in scorning certain sections of society. hardly a good example for potential journalists. there is nothing in this book that anyone over the age of 10 would not already know. total dross. (review by girlfriend of registered user)
