Solid book but nothing on the business aspects
Reviewed in the United States on June 4, 2019
I'm a writer and a fan of Stewart's "Den of Thieves." I read this while in grad school at Berkeley. Great advice for writing, and maybe writing professionally before clickbait took over - but to be SUCCESSFUL? I hate to break it to people, but being thorough, fair, accurate, and entertaining is the LAST thing the mainstream news media will pay you for. If you're independent, like I am now, after writing for the LA Times and others for years, this book's worthwhile - but you have to understand the business and marketing of what you're trying to do, or you are, to borrow an expression from ny New Jersey childhood, "Pissing in the wind."
