Editorial Reviews

"This book, now in its second edition, considers the media from the perspective of a PR practitioner [and] fills a need for a Canadian primer on effective media relations.I felt that Part Two was comparable to a chat with an individual who has through trial and error acquired a high level of expertise in dealing with the media. Indeed, in this section, Carney offers a much straightforward advice in a conversational tone....In the News is written in a direct, unadorned style....In terms of its utility as a course text especially, I would recommend assigning this book in a first or second year PR course. Students can then read the chapters at the rate of one or two per week, with stimulation and role-playing exercises reinforcing the lessons learned. They could then keep In the News as a useful reference, to be consulted when the need arises." Eric Spalding, PRRB, Spring 2009
