'A well-researched and engaging look at the world of social media and blogging in the context of the Australian political system ... The Rise of the Fifth Estate is an important contribution to our knowledge of how Australian politics and the Australian media operate, and is a book that all media professionals, and indeed anyone who is interested in politics and the media, should have on their shelves.'--Eloise Keating "Bookseller and Publisher "
'Jericho has done well to report the subtleties of Twitter and blogger influence with the savvy of an insider in the sane language of humans, rather than media-consultant jargon ... [He] has shot to prominence because he's an unusually adept writer and critic. That easy blend of knowledge and communication isn't common.'--Michelle Griffin "The Sydney Morning Herald "
'Remarkable.'--Matthew Lamb "The Australian "
'An illuminating and, for the most part, entertaining snapshot of where the new media landscape and politics meet.'--Christopher Scanlon "Canberra Times "
