This is a useful A-Z of everything to do with journalism that should be on any media student's desk.

Journalism can be a very technical subject and armed with this book, students can pick their way through the jargon-filled journalistic fog with confidence.

There doesn't seem to be a term that isn't in there.

Comprehensive isn't the word.

A really special book. It should be the first port of call for my students when doing their assignments.
