Praise for The Hollywood Economist

“The answer to [the] mysteries of modern-day film financing can be found in The Hollywood Economist, Edward Jay Epstein’s latest foray into the seamy underbelly of Hollywood spreadsheets.”
The Wall Street Journal

“[A] terrific job…. There’s fun to be had in knowing specifics, and Epstein
 offers plenty.”
Entertainment Weekly
Praise for Edward Jay Epstein’s The Big Picture

“A rich adventure that will change the way you look at movies.”

“Edward Jay Epstein is here to tell us that when it comes to Hollywood these days, we’ve got it all wrong.”
The Washington Post Book World

“One of the virtues of The Big Picture is Mr. Epstein’s astonishing access to numbers that movie studios go to great lengths to keep secret….A groundbreaking work that explains the inner workings of the game.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Hollywood has needed one of these for a long time–a user’s manuel. This one could not be more complete….[Grade] A.”
—Entertainment Weekly

“In his adroit charting of the confidence flow between the various entities and eras Mr. Epstein kicks up a lot of little surprises. . . Edward Jay Epstein is quite good.”
—Larry McMurtry, The New York Review of Books

“. . . [A] valuable education for those seeking to enter and under- stand the entertainment industry. . . . Factually impressive.”
—Joel Hirschhorn, Variety
