    I would give this 3.5 if I could. It is interesting and important and useful. It's also a compilation of essays and really is more of a textbook in practical terms. I definitely have and will refer to it in my journalism classes. That is also part of the reason it has taken me nearly the entire year to finish this book. I would give this 3.5 if I could.
