Abstract

Review of: So You Want to be a Journalist? Unplugged, (2nd Edition). By Bruce Grundy, Martin Hirst, Janine Little, Mark Hayes, Greg Treadwell. Melbourne: Cambridge University Press, 2012, pp. 304. ISBN: 978-1-107-69282-4

After reading dozens of journalism textbooks to find one for our introductory students, I was relieved to find So You Want to be a Journalist? Unplugged. Unlike others in the education marketplace this year, it is straight-forward, practical, and more importantly, it focuses specifically on Australia and New Zealand. Students will be engaged with local examples, case studies, and newsroom practices.
