About the Author:

Charles Madigan, senior editor and correspondent for the Chicago Tribune, teaches at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. He lives in Evanston, Illinois.

Review:

This book is a must read for anyone interested in the fate of the print media. Madigan has done a masterful job of explaining the stark situation newspapers find themselves in, how they got there, and ways out of their dilemma. (Tom Ferrick Jr. The Philadelphia Inquirer)

There was a golden age of newspapers, and Charles Madigan got a taste of that before living through the fall to where we are today, worrying about extinction. It's important to know how the business was ruined and why, and this collection of essential, revealing essays shines a bright light into some dark corners. (Joseph L. Galloway, co-author of We Were Soldiers Once...and Young, We Are Soldiers Still, and Triumph Without Victory: A History of the Persian Gulf War)

A useful and eclectic collection about what looks to be a national tragedy. Let's hope it inspires some creative solutions. (Eric Alterman, Brooklyn College, City University of New York)

Wistful and rather dolorous new collection of essays...Madigan and his contributors grapple gamely with the problem. (Kevin Nance Booklist)

30 is critical in understanding the decline of America's major newspapers. (George Cohen Foreword Reviews)

Move this one to the top of your reading list. (John B. Saul The Seattle Times)

Powerful array of commentary from journalists...[on] the decline of newspaper readership...will inspire a healthy measure of resistance. (Publishers Weekly)

Timely and well written. (R. A. Logan CHOICE)

Theirs is the story of the decline of the big-city American newspaper, seen through the lens of incisive pieces, making this, admittedly, an insider's story, but with serious and vast consequences in the world beyond the newsroom. (Communication Booknotes Quarterly)
