    This review is from: Hollywood Dealmaking : Negotiating Talent Agreements (Paperback)

    I work at a Production company and a lot of contracts we hand to outside lawyers, but this is a good tool for me because it goes into details and discusses each point in a contract. This is something I’d love to have had many years ago, when I just got started in the business, and now that I have it, I am learning a lot of new things. There isn’t any other book out there- quite like this.
