MEDIA REVIEWS
David Spark's down to earth advice on the essentials of reporting is distilled from a lifetime of experience but as fresh and practical as if he were at your elbow in the newsroom. His newcomers' guide to the web as a tool for reporting is especially useful
Sir Harold Evans
former Editor of The Sunday Times

To those who may think that formal journalism is a dying art this book offers a splendid rejoinder. It is for all those who purport to write that others may read
Sir Simon Jenkins
Guardian columnist and former Editor of The Times
