Andy Bull’s book, published by Routledge, is a refreshing relief from much of the hyper-evangelical hysteria that pervades some of the new media camp in the UK.
Not Bull, if this book is anything to go by.
Bull’s calm and practical book is ideal for beginners and undergraduates, as it mixes the fundamentals of basic reporting practice with highly accessible information on multimedia equipment and resources.
It includes really useful exercises for the classroom and well-selected case studies of multimedia practice, including many examples from UK local and regional newspaper websites, rather than the usual US-centric coverage.
There is also a website (and web community) to go with the book.
"A great textbook for undergraduate journalists with a well thought out mix of practical exercises and tips and hints as well as plenty of real-world examples. It covers the essential technical skills they will need. Very impressive."
Mary Williams, Portsmouth University
"The entire layout is inviting for students and a mine of information and ideas for teachers/tutors. It is written in an accessible manner without talking down to its readers, and is obviously written by a journalist for journalism students, but would also be invaluable to a working journalist who was now having to tackle the demands of the convergent newsroom."
Angela Birchall, Salford University
"A text like this is perfect for a young journalist learning the ropes of the business. I’m a huge fan of the chapter setup, and the online portion of the course, it will tie it directly to my course website as well."
Rob Johnson, Director of Multimedia Technology, La Salle College High School
