Entertainment 101 provides an overview of the rapidly changing entertainment industry: Who does what, how, when and why in the making and marketing of America’s most influential and profitable export. A street-smart primer, this book demystifies and explains the terminology and inner workings of the entire industry, covering motion pictures, television, theatre, music and new media. This up-to-the-minute manual is an essential desktop reference for students and entertainment business veterans alike, or indeed anyone fascinated by an industry that intrigues most of us and has a profound effect on our society.
To simplify things, we have divided the far-flung and variegated entertainment industry into its six principle businesses: film, television, music, new media, theater and radio. To help understand how a project is actually created and to identify the players in each medium, we have listed the typical cast and crew credits from a film, a television show, a record album, a stage play, an on-line magazine and a radio show. We have described in detail the jobs of each artist and artisan and what they contribute.

This book is way outdated compared to what entertainment is today. But it does have some useful information on where things came from. Not worth the buy, get it at your library.
