Product Description

Want to learn how to interview people as a journalist? Or maybe you're a pro in need of a refresher course, with some fresh ideas thrown in. Let HOW TO INTERVIEW DOCTOR WHO, OZZY OSBOURNE AND EVERYONE ELSE be your guide!

Drawing on 25 years of experience and with over 1000 interviews behind him, British writer JASON ARNOPP aims to tell you everything he knows about interrogating the great and good. He has spent these decades interviewing celebrities and rock stars for the likes of Heat, Doctor Who Magazine, Q, SFX and Kerrang!, but the vast majority of the principles described here will apply to ANY journalistic interviewing task. You need this book in your toolbox!

Written in an engaging, conversational style, HOW TO INTERVIEW... packs in over 28,000 words of practical wisdom. You’ll learn about the craft of interviewing, all the way from deciding how you’ll record your interviews, to devising questions, to dealing with various types of interviewee, to writing and editing your article.

Beyond that, however, you’ll get a real feel for what it’s like out there on the front-line. The surprises which PR folk may spring on you when you arrive to conduct your interview. The challenge of getting a reluctant, or even downright angry, interviewee to warm to you and open up. Even what to do when you realise that your recording device has failed to record the interview!

The Structure Of An Interview Article

Learn the JOURNALISTIC SECRETS of interviewing, with this incredible, indispensable volume!

Yes, HOW TO INTERVIEW... is priced at a rate of 40 pence/49 cents for every year of experience that has been poured into it.

TESTIMONIALS

"This guide to interviewing is tremendous fun, with some genuine insight into the whole process. Fascinating stuff, and properly amusing too. Brilliant!" - Tom Spilsbury (Editor of DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE.)

"With a great sense of humour and a sharp ear for the telling quote, Jason Arnopp is an interviewer who always gets the goods. Read and learn” - Andrew Harrison (Editor-At-Large of Q, former Editorial Director of MIXMAG and SMASH HITS.)

"Boy, I wish this book had been around when I started out. You can buy it as a PDF direct from the author for less than the cost of most magazines, and I'd advise new journalists to do so" - Catherine Bray (FILM4.COM editor)

"Jason Arnopp is one of those ludicrous, funny people who manages to get the most reticent of stars to tell him things that they really shouldn't. As a journalist, he is blessed with a remarkable bedside manner. He might be able to teach you a thing or two” - Phil Alexander (MOJO Editor-In-Chief and former KERRANG! Editor.)

“It was my very happy experience to work with and read Jason Arnopp for a number of years on Kerrang! One singular thing marked Jason apart in his field – he had the invaluable ability to ask the unexpected question that caught both subject and reader off guard, and unfailingly meant you found out something new about whomever he was interviewing" - Paul Rees (former Editor of Q and KERRANG!)
