Often hilarious and exactly on point, based on my experiences as a journalist. Any budding PR professional should take note. Easy to read and quite entertaining; the only problem with the edition was the tendency for pull quotes following the quotes already in the main text. A bit jarring at first, but you learn to ignore it.

Recommends it for: Public relations professionals
This book offered great insights on what journalists are looking for when being pitched by PR professionals. I've read a lot of these kinds of books that aren't helpful, but if you're in the business, this one is worth reading. You should learn something.

I didn't find this book all that helpful, and the often-snarky tone got annoying. If you read this, start in the middle.
