"What is new here is the degree of detail and description Parsons gives to the people and events that brought about the evolution of cable television in the United States. The links his book forges between cable pioneers and the chain of events that created the enterprise is fresh material, no longer clouded by speculation and guesswork." -- William R. Davie, Associate Professor of Communication/Broadcast Coordinator, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
