The Best American Magazine Writing 2016  is an affectionate appointment. Published every year, edited by Sid Holt for the American Society of Magazine Editors the principal organization for magazine journalists in the United States, this book is sponsored in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
Introduction by Roger Hodge, national editor of The Intercept in this book an interview with ex former President Barack Obama "Fixing the System," another piece is about the importance of software and technology with "The Code." I appreciated all the JavaScript  part.
BuzzFeed News in the while excelled for investigative journalism about that employers benefiting of the H-2 visa program for hiring temporary foreign workers.
Cosmo investigated pregnancies, old-fashioned ideas, religious strength, abortion, in "Pregnant? Scared? Need options? Too bad"
If you are interested in epidemic situations, Joshua Hammer is ready for you with "My nurses are Dead, and I don't know if I'm already infected" about  Dr.Sheik Humarr Khan as an Ebola patient and what it meant living in a country like Sierra Leone where a high percentage of people close to him fell sick and sometimes died because of Ebola.
Interesting "The Really Big One" by Kathryn Schulz about a potential major earthquake in the Pacific Northwest
You'll find much much more in this book and I am sure you'll love it.

Highly recommended to everyone in love for journalism, current events or just curious about the world and what it is going on.

And if you are in the media, read the best for...being the best :-)

I thank NetGalley and Columbia University Press for this ebook.
