"Journalists must put a certain degree of attractive enticement in their stories, if those stories are to be read by a passive audience that has learned to ask of newspapers that they provide more than stock-market figures, weather reports, or baseball scores."

William M. Chase,

Stanford University, from the Introduction

"Thanks for a clear, concise, and thoroughly interesting text -- it will make my job much more enjoyable."

Tom Buckley

The Pennsylvania State University
