Review:

Extremely useful... (Classic Images)

This wide-ranging reference tool will assist writers, journalists, scholars, fans, and all others interested in researching materials in the areas of entertainment. (American Reference Books Annual)

A must buy. (Sightlines)

A veritable research course for the popular entertainment field... (American Libraries)

...virtually every when, why, where, and how.... extremely valuable advice... (Movie Collector's World)

The especially helpful quality about Pruett's book is that it's for anyone up against any entertainment research project. Its hundreds of leads to sources are particularly useful. (The Big Reel)

This volume is really quite useful for the researcher in popular entertainment, popular culture in general, or research in general. (The Journal of Popular Culture)

...a well-designed and serviceble primer...will be particularly valuable for beginning researchers, or those exploring an entertainment topic for the first time...the index is comprehensive and well-arranged for quick referencing.... (Communication Booknotes Quarterly)

...excellent introduction...librarians will welcome Pruett's emphasis on database searching...recommended for all medium-large academic and public libraries. (CHOICE)

Valuable to the neophyte...even seasoned researchers may pick up a few hints and discover new sources of information...has included the most significant titles. (Dorothy L. Swerdlove, Retired Curator, Billy Rose Theater C)

Unusually helpful. (Roger P. Phelps, Professor Emeritus, New York University)
