“Tim Harrower’s ‘Inside Reporting’ does for reporting what his design handbook did for designers — rejuvenates the subject by providing the basic skills in a form that students will read. Harrower’s style almost guarantees that my students will learn how to provide their readers with information in a visually pleasing manner. And they can’t stop reading. I’ve never seen that before with any other reporting textbook."

Mark Witherspoon,


Iowa State University



“An innovative text designed in a far more imaginative way than any other media writing book that I’ve ever seen.”

Sara Stone,


Baylor University



“THE book for the new generation of students. It’s entertaining and visual, and that’s the way students learn these days.”

John Zibluk,
