The Art of Editing continues to be the standard by which editing texts are judged, offering the most comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of editing available.Adds new material comprising over half the text, including more practical instruction, more sidebars, and new concepts such as the "Three R's of Editing" and "holistic editing." Places increased emphasis on editing for radio, television, and the World Wide Web, providing students with critical information for today's media environment. Features a new focus on convergence, reflecting the vast changes occurring in the media today. Expands coverage of legal and ethical issues to help better prepare students for their professional careers.Praise for The Art of Editing "I believe The Art of Editing is a solid text for the first-year, basic course on editing news copy. It offers a good mix of editing philosophies and the basics: guidelines, rules and examples." Bill Ferguson, Columbia College"Major strengths of the text are that it is comprehensive, serious and professional and doesn't talk down to the students and that, overall, it doesn't oversimplify the art of editing." Dr. Emil Dansker, Central State University"I used the Brooks/Sissors text because it offered editing suggestions for a variety of media. I chose the text because it compiled a lot of information into one book rather than several: style, grammar, design, editing techniques." Leara Rhodes, University of Georgia"I initially used Brooks and Sissors because I inherited it from my predecessor...but I've stuck with it because it gets the job done. It is the lone text that I have not replaced in a journalism course..." Robert K. Hays, Northampton Community College"Overall, I have always thought this text to be an excellent book. I admire its comprehensive chapters. It's helpful, concise, and true to the ideals of journalism." Glen L. Bleske, California State University ChicoBrooks, Brian S. is the author of 'Art of Editing in the Age of Convergence', published 2004 under ISBN 9780205418268 and ISBN 0205418260.
