I was skeptical when I first picked up Heat and Light. It was not a book I was obligated to read for class, nor was it a book I was told to read for a job; it was a book I wanted to read for my future journalist self.

Some really good insight for anyone working in Broadcast/Print/Radio news. Towards the end, a lot of the material seemed to be common sense, but added historical facts with certain cases and situations.

I need it as a journalisim student though iam gonna readi again =D
Good information with a little bit of humor. Really great interviewing advice (for both broadcast and print) journalists.
Wallace was a brilliant journalists I revered when I was younger. One of us has gotten older and more simplistic.
