Harrower, Tim. Inside reporting : a practical guide to the craft of journalism / written & designed by Tim Harrower. – New York, 2007. – 318 p.
“Tim Harrower’s Inside Reporting does for reporting what his design handbook did for designers — rejuvenates the subject by providing the basic skills in a form that students will read. Harrower’s style almost guarantees that my students will learn how to provide their readers with information in a visually pleasing manner. He not only tells them how to do it, he shows them. And they can’t stop reading. I’ve never seen that before with any other reporting textbook.”

Baker, Bob. Newsthinking : the secret of making your facts fall into place / by Bob Baker. – Boston, 2002. – 174 p.
Bob Baker “slays the dragon” of journalism…. Newsthinking takes a hardened topic like journalism—a discipline where many large books have been written about concise writing—and “boils down to sugar” the qualities a writer needs for succinctness…. The reader is taken on a sojourn into the discipline of psychology. Baker uses mental exercises, mental imagery, and mental toughness throughout the book to teach lessons in topics such as audience perspective, voice, and brain function…. His sense of balance is impeccable; his first-things-first approach places the reader/writer at the helm of a navigable journalism…. I believe that most students will respond to this text as I did as a journalism student twenty years ago when it was originally published.
