Inside Reporting: A Practical Guide to the Craft of Journalism
This text does for reporting what Tim Harrower's The Newspaper Designer's Handbook has previously done for design: make it fun and accessible to newcomers. Harrower is an award-winning editor, designer and columnist who has previously taught at Portland State University and currently conducts journalism workshops.

It also includes more useful information on feature writing--from stories to reviews and column-writing--than any other text in the field.
