Review

'This book is clearly laid out ... the illustrations are generally colourful and refer to contemporary films. Interesting facts are provided in 'Media Fact' boxes and job profiles. Vocabulary related to film is highlighted and explained ... It has its uses in school libraries. It could be a careers reference text'. -- School Librarian, Winter 2002 '[T]his is an excellent book for film and media students.
