This was a required book for one of my TV classes and I'm very glad I bought it new and not used or rented it. Its a great resource. The glossary is very useful and the pictures in it are bright and full of detail. This book isn't that large for containing 450 pages. Its pretty slim and definitely a good investment.

This book was mandatory for a production course, but I would suggest just sharing a copy with a classmate or friend rather than buy it. Unless you have regular exams or quizzes, you won't really need a textbook for a production class that is hands-on. The fun thing at least is that there are references to modern shows like "The Office" and helpful illustrations of concepts like 3-point lighting or different types of camera shots in case you need to study them further.
