"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."

Louis Barnes
Chief Financial Executive, Sierra Club

“Things are changing so quickly in the entertainment industry, professionals in every sector of the business are struggling just to keep up.  I can think of no more current or focused resource concerning the rapidly evolving medium of television than Ken Basin's chapters on this topic, and no one more qualified or capable than Ken to serve as a guide through this challenging landscape.”

Nick La Terza
Partner with law firm The Point Media, and former senior legal/business executive for Largo Entertainment, New World Pictures, and Alliance Atlantis Entertainment

“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

"Since film financing has become a global challenge more so than a local endeavor, the overview and insights presented by Robert Williams in his chapter addressing motion picture financing provides precious and unique information for all industry experts.  Thank you and well done, Robert!"

Dr. Andreas Psechel -Mehner
Film and Entertainment Lawyer, Partner with SKW Schwarz (Munich)

"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!"

Matthew A. Burke (SPA, CFP)
