"One doesn’t see often a publication, which is valid universally for print media in any country. Although the more than 400-pages text by Tatiana Repkova is navigated by an invisible thread of journalism in emerging democracies, the book provides suggestions for all journalists, whether they live in emerging or mature democracies, in the West or the East, in the South or the North. (...) I am inclined to believe that if newspapers (read ‘journalism’) are not art, they are certainly difficult to craft. Tatiana Repkova writes that "indeed, journalism can be both art and craft, however, developing art takes mastering craft first." After reading the New Times publication, I am even more convinced about journalism as art and craft. For that I thank the author. Let her forgive me that, with good intentions, I will call her book simply a unique cookbook to produce good newspapers. I highly recommend her work to every journalist."
