The book, entitled, "What Good is Journalism?" is a set of case studies on "how reporters and editors are saving America's way of life. Edited by George kennedy and Daryl Moen, the book includes pieces by Overholser on NPR, Brant Houston on investigative reporting, Stuart Loory on the "journalism you deserve" and six other chapters.
