This is a snappy, concise little handbook, the kind students like to buy, since it doesn't appear to demand too much study. The students are likely to be fooled, however, because each of the seventeen chapters deals with topics that can be extended and expanded by a good teacher to more than fill a semester's work. Journalism textbooks written by former and current members of the working press are now quite numerous and often forbiddingly expensive. This one, unlike those that try to cover all forms of media, confines itself to print. That's where it all began though, unfortunately, too many joumalism students are interested only in electronic media. For a solid print text, this is one of the better ones. Even a would-be anchor person would do wen to wear it out with study. A television studio is nothing like a newsroom, and that is where Teel and Taylor carry us. Two new chapters have been added to this second edition: "Gatekeepers," deals with editors;"Wired for News," explores the ways in which electronic equipment can help the reporter with his task. -- From Independent Publisher
