"As the managing partner at Singer Burke Zimmer, LLP, I am eager to have a concise resource available that covers the complex legal and taxation environment as it relates to the Entertainment Industry, especially with the level of detail and transparency that Shane and Brad have brought to this subject matter.  I highly recommend this book to the tax practitioner, as well as the non-tax practitioner, for an in-depth look at the intricacies and opportunities of today’s changing laws, including the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Congratulations on a book that is bound to help many entrepreneurs, as well as established business owners, as they start/continue their journey.  Job Well Done!"

"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."
