"The intricacies and details of the legal aspects of theater are skillfully and precisely outlined in this book.  It's not an easy task, and the authors spell everything out so clearly that even this non-lawyer can understand it all!  I was very impressed by how easily things are explained, and I can think of no better guide to help anyone through every step needed in producing for the theater."

Theodore S. Chapin
President, The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization

"I have worked with Steve Monas multiple times during his career in the film business.  His knowledge of motion picture distribution is second to none.  I strongly suggest that anyone looking to break into this area of our business should read Steve’s chapter on Motion Picture Distribution.  It is both concise and complete.  A must read."

Mark Damon
CEO Foresight Unlimited; Producer: Monster, Lone Survivor, Das Boot

"The Essential Guide to Entertainment Law is just that -- and is worth its weight in gold."

Gray Frederickson
Film Educator and a Producer of Godfather II (Academy Award), Apocolypse Now, and The Outsiders

"If asked to recommend a one stop read on legal fundamentals for entertainment industry dealmaking, this 2-volume series would be high on my list. Gail Ross’ chapter on the literary publishing industry is superb!"

Jeff Wilson
VP Contracts, Simon & Schuster

“Steve Monas knows what he’s talking about—he has seen these deals from every side, and lived to tell the tale!”
