“…It covers all the areas needed for a modern multimedia journalist. Covers more than just tools. A great overall introduction to multimedia journalism.”
"This is the best how-to guide I’ve come across that provides comprehensive information on digital media. It provides a general overview, which I like. I believe it is distinct from other books that cover digital media. Journalism Next provides a general overview of and guide to using digital media in a journalism context."
"Because it is written and produced both for students as a textbook and for working journalists as a reference, it takes on more of that reference appeal. It makes it easier to pick and choose different areas you want to read without feeling as if you have missed information that you need to understand. I would call it a reference book for the working journalist and those who want to be working journalists."
"The text is practical and comprehensive in a way that many others are not. For example, I can tell a student to read chapter 6 and then expect them to have a reasonably good chance at producing usable audio immediately. It has the feel of a field manual. Good field guide to multimedia journalism. Gets you going fast, even if you only know a little about audio, video, photo, etc."
"Of the digital news textbooks I’ve seen, I always come back to Mark’s because he smartly covers the vital skills that journalists need in an easy-to-read manner. A handy resource for journalism students looking to learn digital skills for the first time or bolster their chops in order to land internships or first jobs."
"It’s the most comprehensive, one-stop guide to today’s digital media landscape, written by one of the industry’s most respected and leading-edge online journalists."
