Now that’s how you review a book! Thanks Prof



The top media law academic in the US, Professor Kyu Ho Youm, has just reviewed my recent book Blogging and Tweeting Without Getting Sued in the leading journal Journalism & Mass Communication Educator.

Prof Youm is Jonathan Marshall First Amendment Chair at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication and immediate past president of the 3700 member Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

His review was a lesson in academic book reviewing. He did considerably more than just criticise or praise the book (though he did both at various points!). Prof Youm manage to inject new gems of knowledge and insight about the field in the process, including the suggestion of additional reading and cases that have been since decided.

He concludes by recommending it as a text:-).
