Praise for The Art of Editing
“I believe The Art of Editing is a solid text for the first-year, basic course on editing news copy. It offers a good mix of editing philosophies and the basics: guidelines, rules and examples.”
Bill Ferguson, Columbia College
“Major strengths of the text are that it is comprehensive, serious and professional and doesn't talk down to the students and that, overall, it doesn't oversimplify the art of editing.”
Dr. Emil Dansker, Central State University
“I used the Brooks/Sissors text because it offered editing suggestions for a variety of media. I chose the text because it compiled a lot of information into one book rather than several: style, grammar, design, editing techniques.”
Leara Rhodes, University of Georgia
“I initially used Brooks and Sissors because I inherited it from my predecessor...but I've stuck with it because it gets the job done. It is the lone text that I have not replaced in a journalism course...”
Robert K. Hays, Northampton Community College
“Overall, I have always thought this text to be an excellent book. I admire its comprehensive chapters. It's helpful, concise, and true to the ideals of journalism.”
Glen L. Bleske, California State University Chico
