What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar

Graham Fuller


"... extremely useful"

Andrew Mango


"FPR olmadan ne yapardım ya da bugüne kadar ne yapmışım bilemiyorum"

"Güne başlamak için FPR’den daha iyi bir yol düşünemiyorum"
