Reviews

"The authors of this tasty little volume have set for themselves the difficult task of trying to articulate the role and potential of a form of journalism they call 'conversational journalism.' All told they have made a useful contribution....It deserves to be critically read by both journalism students and practicing professionals."-Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly
