In the decade of Spielberg and Lucas and "pre-sold" sequels, Hollywood learned to adapt to video, pay-per-view and cable television. Moviegoers no longer had to go to the movies. Volume 10 of this acclaimed series chronicles the biggest transformation since the late 1940s in the way Hollywood did business.

User Review  - Lindsay - Goodreads

This book was entirely too technical for me and was honestly just a bore to read. Granted I had to read it for a class and hardly ever enjoy doing that, but Prince just relies too heavily on statistics to prove his point. Read full review
