By JMG Buyer on December 17, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
While Handel does an excellent job relayimg the issues involved im the strike as well as the economic backlash he is redundent in many ways too. For example he continues to repeat definitions for thimgs like patterned bargaining. I am on a quarter through the book and he has defined it at least four times. The same holds true with explanation why it would be better for the WGA to design the deal template rather than the DGA as the DGA members do not typically live off residual income due to their members imitial deals with the studios.

Other tham redundancies the book is a great resource for what the whole strike was about and the issues and proposals imvolved.

Purchased this e-book for a term paper in my Labor Relations class. This is the only actual book that I could find on the subject, and it was very helpful.
