    1. A useful read if you're just starting out as a freelancer or considering it. There is some useful advice, particularly on understanding the financial value of reportage and treating work like a business.

    2. Short, to the point, useful. Esp for the sections on pitching and the appendix listing all his successful pitches over the past few years.
