"This book is a delight for the general reader as well as an excellent resource for undergraduate or graduate students of journalism. It represents many of the finest nonfiction writers of the past several decades. There are many treasures here--and some real surprises. This is compelling stuff, wide ranging and beautifully balanced."--Evan Cornog, School of Journalism, Columbia University "The range, care, and thoughtfulness with which this volume has been edited is hugely impressive. It is an extraordinary work whose greatest strength lies in the selections themselves. It will be exceptionally useful as a supplemental text for undergraduate instruction and is very likely to find a receptive audience among the public as well."--David Abrahamson, Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern UniversityMcPhee, John is the author of 'Princeton Anthology of Writing Favorite Pieces by the Ferris/McGraw Writers at Princeton University' with ISBN 9780691086804 and ISBN 069108680X.
