Al Tompkins reminds students about a disarmingly simple truth about broadcast journalism: people remember what they feel. If you aim for the heart with the copy you write and the sound and video you capture, you will never fail to grab your viewers and compel them to keep watching. Aim for the Heart is as close as you can get to having Tompkins's training sessions at the ready.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For those of us in journalism, our world is quickly changing beneath our feet. Aim for the Heart will give you something solid to stand on, with insights on how to be a better storyteller and how to make the most of the newest technology." -- Byron Pitts
"In the midst of a changing industry, Aim for the Heart is more important than ever. It reminds journalists that no matter what the platform, the story is still key. Writing matters. Every manager should have this in their library; it is a great way to inspire newsrooms." -- Carolyn Mungo
"Aim for the Heart offers outstanding lessons for students at all levels. Tompkins' approach is smart and engaging, bringing multimedia stories into focus through effective and ethical practices. His emphasis on improving technique in writing, shot composition and the marriage of the two moves students forward." -- Kathleen Culver
"Knowing about `the next big thing' is meaningless without thinking carefully about how those 'big things' enhance the fundamentals of journalism-the fundamentals that give our audiences stories that are ethically sound, engaging and informative. Al Tompkins gets that connection, and he stands for journalism that matters. Anyone who has ever attended one of Al Tompkins' workshops knows that he brings amazing insight, energy and passion into the classroom. What's even more amazing is how he manages to convey that energy and passion in print. Aim for the Heart inspired ordinary journalists to do extraordinary work." -- Lisa Taylor

"Aim for the Heart is the book I wish I could have read 20 years sooner. Al Tompkins reveals the secrets of compelling visual stories. As an award winning broadcast journalist, Al taught himself the `magic" years ago. His willingness to share and teach is his gift to the rest of us."

-- Boyd Huppert
