The Curious Journalist's Guide to Data
by Jonathan Stray
Number of pages: 122
This is a book about using data in journalism, but it's not a particularly practical book. Instead it's for the curious, for those who wonder about the deep ideas that hold everything together. Some of these ideas are very old, some have emerged in just the last few decades, and many of them have come together to create the particularly twenty-first century practice of data journalism.

This essay is part survey and part manifesto, one that concerns itself with the practice of journalism and the practices of journalists in the United States. It is not about the future of the news industry, because there is no such industry anymore.
