Phil Andrews’ book Sports Journalism is a must-have for students studying the business. It is detailed, readable, and up-to-date including plenty of information and tips on exploring the potential of online sports journalism. Essential reading on my course. - Charlie Lambert

Sports journalism: A Practical Introduction provides budding sports journalists with an ideal guide to the world of sports journalism. This simple to read and informative guide takes the reader on a detailed, practical and up-to-date journey through the various elements of practical sports journalism, from writing, to commentary and social networking. - John Cafferkey

Nine years have elapsed since this book was first published – and in that period Sports Journalism has been transformed by the growth of social media and the ever-increasing influence of PR. This latest edition recognises that, with references to the ‘new age’ underpinned by the traditional crafts and techniques. It is invaluable to those studying Sports Journalism, and for those wanting to brush-up on their skills. - Ian Bayley
