"Five Stars" - by Andrea Ochoa
Great condition!
"Bought this for my media law class, but was ..." - by Tamusia
Bought this for my media law class, but was a little up to date, the lecturer choose the newest addition for the class, but I still could use this book. The thing is that, the newest addition has new cases.
"Excellent text for media law" - by Lindsay MH
Really liked all the case examples and the way the chapters were organized. I felt I could grasp each concept and then build upon it with every new chapter.
"Very good book. Used for my media law college course" - by Kirkus Reviews (Capitol Heights, Maryland United States)
Very good book. Used for my media law college course.
"If you are in business you need to buy this book now" - by Dan (Texas)
Solid resource for anyone working in the space of corporate social media-- this 40 dollars could save you millions in lawsuits.
"Leaves me confused on some topics" - by Amazon Customer
This book is great but it's missing some crucial information and does not clarify everything I'm looking for. For example, I had to solve the issue of B.C. vs. BCE or B.C.E. for dates. This AP book only lists B.C. as an option without addressing the recently common, more politically correct BCE. Multiple arguments on the internet say that BCE is the new standard, whereas a NYT article on the subject said it should be B.C.E. I would hope that this latest edition would be able to address style changes that have happened years ago.

Occasionally, I try to look up the correct punctuation only to end up more confused after reading the entire section.

It has a good amount of detail on a lot of useful things, but seems to be lacking detail on the items I actually need to look up.

The quality and feel of the book are great.
"Extremely Helpful" - by Ryan Murano (Utah, USA)
There are SO many cases that are cited and explained throughout the text that help clarify the specifics of mass communication law. It is a required textbook for one of my courses but the latest version is very helpful and easy to read.

"it's concise and easy to understand" - by Gerard A. Igyor
It met my expectations and beyond, the price is right, it's concise and easy to understand. It is not clogged with too my cases unlike other books in that category.
"perfect for journalism majors!!" - by Angela Hamrick Cooley
as a journalism major this was a must for me.
"Comprehensive Views About Social Media" - by Brian D (New York, NY)
The book provides a comprehensive look at social media and communication
"Helpful" - by Lucas Holt (Ypsilanti, MI USA)
This was quite helpful while taking a journalism course. It takes a few minutes to understand the layout of the book to lookup things, but once you get it, it's easy.

I think this book helped raise me a letter grade in my course. Anyone taking a journalism course with a strict professor or planning on entering journalism should get a copy. My textbook had a reference in it, but it was quite small. With the low cost of this book, you can't go wrong.

If you're taking the course without an intent to go into journalism, check to see if you can use copies from the department first.
"A Must." - by Jay Barrett (Kodiak, Alaska)
The reporters' bible. The Kindle online reader is a very convenient way to access this first-ever e-book version of the Stylebook (no more lousy app that needs wholesale replacement regularly). Highly recommended.
