Pierson's name may not be a household one, but the filmmakers he's been associated with?Spike Lee, Michael Moore, Jim Jarmusch?are well known to fans of independent films. Pierson has been friend, investor, and, most importantly, business agent to these and lesser talents and has been a fixture on the festival scene for over a decade. His account of that scene is both honest and maddeningly incomplete. He offers immense detail on some of his deals (even reprinting the Roger and Me contract highlights) but is sketchy on others. He's frank in appraising the work and personality of filmmakers but vague about himself, especially his background. Still, within his milieu Pierson is a heavyweight, and his book is a good choice for collections with large film sections.?Thomas Wiener, editor, "Satellite DIRECT"

The deals, enlivened by the author's bio, never lose their human complexion.... Mr. Pierson, who has lived, breathed and hunted film for most of his adult life, covers his territory with urgency and conviction, and his single-mindedness is ravishing. -- : The New York Times Book Review, Liesl Schillinger
