“Ken Basin has given us a great primer in the nuts and bolts of the rapidly evolving television business -- told with insight, brevity, and wit.  Basin's experience on both sides of the buyer/seller equation really shows through, and makes this book a valuable tool for anyone who wants to understand the business side of the shows we love to watch.”

Dan Scharf
Amazon Studios, Head of Business Affairs

"What we have waited for: Robert William’s very instructive chapter on Motion Picture Finance is a comprehensive compendium of the Whys and Wherefores of film financing and will serve as a profound work of reference for details in our day to day practice. Rob presents an encouragingly readable guide for all film lawyers and will foster comprehension of this complex matter even among industry participants outside the Hollywood legal crowd."

Philip Löhr
General Counsel, Tele München Group

"Steve Monas is one of the top lawyers in the independent film distribution business, and he has brought his thirty-plus years of experience to bear in his chapter on Motion Picture distribution. Clear and concise, practical and interesting, filled with practical tips derived from actual sample agreements, this chapter will be of use to practitioners interested in developing expertise in these types of transactions, and even experienced attorneys will find it informative. It is so well-written that I plan to assign it to my motion picture seminar students, as soon as available."

Jay Dougherty
Professor of Law & Director, Entertainment/Media Law Institute & Concentration Program Loyola Law School (Los Angeles)

“I love this set of books! I recommend it to students and colleagues all the time. Each chapter is like having a personal mentor who is an expert in the field at your fingertips.”

Victoria Wasinger, Esq.
Department Chair, Entertainment & Music Business Bachelor of Science Program, Full Sail University

"We (Sierra Club) now own three sets of The Essential Guide to Entertainment Law. We knew we could gain valuable insights into the subject matter from anything Jay Shanker and his colleagues would offer."
