Further updates and features include: Increased attention to computer-assisted reporting, the preparation of online copy, and social media applications Two new chapters on lead writing and new new media A separate chapter focused solely on ethics Explanatory "how to" boxes that help students understand and retain main themes Illustrative "It Happened to Me" vignettes from the authors’ professional experiences Discussion questions and exercises at the end of every chapter Suggested readings that highlight biographies, books, and websites that expand the scope and definition of professionalism In addition to new multimedia elements, the fourth edition’s companion website features enhanced resources for both students and instructors, including chapter overviews, writing tips, a test bank, sample critiques, and a sample syllabus.

Welcome to the world of journalism! There are not many books that can serve as useful guides to the students of journalism and more so for students of print journalism. In fact, as one involved in teaching of journalism alongside working as a full-time journalist, we felt that teaching at journalism schools was completely bereft of practise and there was more emphasis on theoretical part. It is this lacuna that two of us with experience of working with national dailies have tried to fill. This book is a complete book of print journalism as authors have devoted special chapters on print journalism, what news is, news reporting, feature and middle writing, writing of headlines and intros, inverted-pyramid style of writing, developmental journalism, investigative journalism, business journalism, glossary of newspaper terms, press laws and self-regulation, structure and departments of a newspaper, and yoga and spirituality for more positivity in mass media. Written in an easy-to-understand manner, this book can do wonders for you and would be your companion for years to come. All the best! —Charanjit Ahuja and Bharat Hiteshi
