Review quote

Author Rich Amada has done a remarkable job in de-mystifying the legal system and basic law for creative types. Amada has written this work in a very clear and even humorous manner, making it a surprisingly easy, quick read. Anyone can readily understand the basics to how to protect one's work and potentially maximize profits from creative labor after reading Amada's book.- Andy Rodriguez, New Phoenix FilmworksWhen it comes to relevant matters of the law, we artists often don't know what we don't know: Rich Amada's book takes care of that. Rich's background as a successful playwright and his expertise as a lawyer bring a unique depth and perspective to the subject. This journey through the labyrinth of the law is paved with abundant examples and well lit by Rich's sense of humor. An Artist's Guide to the Law is a reference book that belongs on the writer's shelf next to the Thesaurus and The Complete Works of Shakespeare.- Ernie Joselovitz, President, Playwrights Forumshow more
