Data journalism ebook now on Amazon’s Kindle Store

Data journalism book Data Journalism Heist

My short ebook Data Journalism Heist is now available on Amazon for Kindle (US link here – also available on other countries’ Amazon sites).

The book is an introduction to data journalism and two simple techniques in particular: finding story leads using pivot tables and advanced filters.

The book also covers useful sources of data, how to follow leads up, and how to tell the resulting story.

You can also buy it from Leanpub, where it’s been live for a couple months now and is available in PDF, mobi and ePub formats. Comments welcome as always.

    Hey Paul, loved the book. Really looking forward to the next one. For what it’s worth, I was really glad that I was able to get it on LeanPub as a PDF. It was the kind of book that I wanted to read while I worked through it at the same time. I think having it on my Kindle would have driven me crazy.

      Thanks – that’s wonderful to hear. Haven’t had much feedback until the last week, so relieved to know people are finding it useful. I also prefer Leanpub but understand that Kindle is more convenient for some people.

        I’m actually working on applying your principals to Google Spreadsheets. I found a cool web scraper extension that automatically imports web content into a Google Spreadsheet. From there, pivot tables and filters are roughly the same; plus there’s the friendly connection with Google fusion tables.
