What Journalism Books Do Journalists Recommend?


Before you say "Who gives a Felt," scroll down to Reason book-critic-in-chief Nick Gillespie's response:

Build a bonfire on the beach with all those hand-wringing tomes about journalism's sick, sad decline that have washed ashore these past few years like so much medical waste on Coney Island. To learn all you ever need to know about credibility, credulity, and the ability to hold (and alienate) an audience, turn to The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, the 1838 "true-life" tale of mutiny, cannibalism, and much more by the first gonzo journalist, Edgar Allan Poe.
