Book Review: The Data Journalism Handbook

Data Journalism Book CoverIn this post, I am going to write the Book Review for The Data Journalism Handbook

Earlier, I had shared an insight from the Book with you, Here it is: “World has changed, from what’s NEW to “what does it all Mean” – This means that Professionals who focus on reporting “what’s new” would soon be “out of job”. And they should start equip themselves with Analytics skills that helps them uncover insights from all the news around us and help us all make sense of information that’s all around us.

To that end, The book “Data Journalism” is a great inspiration for Journalist and it seems it’s meant to encourage journalist to start embracing the change. It inspires Journalists to think of stories and find data about it. So what’s it for Data Geeks? It encourages Data Geeks to help journalists weave story around the data that they found. The book also outlines resources that Data Geeks could use.

Now, Two things I really Liked about the book:

1. Examples & case-studies, Lots of them! very inspiring!

2. I came to know about Tools that I didn’t knew about before. I am going to use them!

You can read the book online (web version) for free here: http://datajournalismhandbook.org/
