Abstract

This book is an excellent entry point into the tangled world of data journalism and the complexities involved with equipping current and future journalists with the skills to practice it. The editor, An Nguyen, and the authors of the 16 chapters use data to back up their plain-speaking arguments and incisive insights into the core difficulties being faced by both the news industry and the academy that serves it.
