Nwanma’s Reporting Business and Economy is a kind of DIY of economic reporting. A text that the general reader can understand; but it also empowers any journalist to communicate business and economic content competently. -Emevwo Biakolo
This book simplifies business and financial reporting, stripping the subject of its cultish aura. – Azubuike Ishiekwene
Nothing beats the writer who writes from experience. Nwanma has deftly brought his experience as an economist and business correspondent in Nigeria, Ghana, and the United States to bear so loudly on this book. – Herbert Batta
Reporting Business and Economy, is unlike any other book on the subject; it is one of the few written from the point of view of the Nigerian business environment, and written by a practising professional still active in the daily business of reporting news. – Richard O. Ikiebe
