5.0 out of 5 stars Writing for Television, Radio, and New Media June 20 2000
Format:Paperback
This is the seventh edition of this book which, although apparently written as a text for use in college courses, actually serves very well for those of us who are interested in writing for special audiences, i.e., electronic media and video productions, etc. It's completely up to date and even a little ahead of itself, which is no mean feat in this age of rapid technology. I'm impressed with the way the writing principles and techniques are put across, but mostly with all the examples of what this kind of script should actually look like, on paper. Included are chapters on interviews and talk shows, corporate and children's programs, plays, everything. The book is quite expensive, but when I think about how much it will be referred to and constantly skimmed for new information, I can certainly justify the price. I am a creative writing teacher sometimes and a freelance writer all the time. As the author of The Complete Guide to Writers Groups, Conferences and Workshops (Wiley), I write the subsequent spin-off Ask Eileen column for iUniverse and America Online's Writers Club. I get tons of inquiries about how to write for the new interactive media and find this book a marvelous resource. It covers every aspect, leaves no stone unturned. I'm always referring to books on writers and writing and this one stands more than a cut above the rest. Oh, and one more thing,it's responsible. It doesn't pretend to be a quick-fix to making tons of money; it emphasizes professionalism in the best sense of the word. It's a fine investment, a fine, fine piece of work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced Common Sense Feb. 6 2013
By Edward Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like most everyone reading this book, I am a college student who was forced to purchase it for a class in writing.

PLEASE HEAR ME OUT BEFORE YOU READ THE REST OF THIS REVIEW!

This book has all the material you need to become better at writing, but for how much it costs, it is not worth the admission. You can get much cheaper books, such as "Writing for Visual Media" that have just as much information for a fraction of the cost.

That, and this book is really dense. Don't expect any visuals any time soon. I'm not really a visual learner, but after 50 pages of nothing but small print text, it gets old quick.

If you, like me, are a student, buy this book for a cheap as you can so you can resell it. If you are an adult wanting to hone your reading and writing skills, then find a cheaper book.

Just because this book is expensive doesn't mean it is the best.
2.0 out of 5 stars Poor condition March 6 2014
By content - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was advertised as being in good condition. The cover was torn, pages were dog eared, there was writing and underlining throughout the book. I do not consider that as being in good condition. Couple the condition of the book with the fact that it took three weeks to receive the book I will not be using this distributor again!
5.0 out of 5 stars excellent packaging Jan. 9 2014

This book is for a college course that begins 1/13/14 therefore I have no basis of its value as a text. It arrived quickly, very well packaged. High marks.
