This series examines a wide array of professions; each book goes behind the scenes and on the job with a professional in a particular field.

These books provide a glimpse of some of the projects, challenges, and rewards of a job on a day-to-day basis.

The professional life of a news reporter at a major metropolitan newspaper is brought to light in this insightful reference.

At a time when journalists are facing criticism for ignoring community news in favour of "the big story", the Washington Post reporter Hamil R Harris has made it his mission to cover the community thoroughly and compassionately.

Detailing his dogged persistence in cultivating sources and winning their trust while still reporting on them with a critical eye, this daily record also tracks the tasks of a journalist whose profession is changing rapidly due to technological advances and consumer habits.
