The Curious Journalist's Guide to Data
by

Publisher: GitBook
Number of pages: 122

Description:
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.
