The Big Business of Entertainment.

‘Blockbusters: Hit-making, Risk-taking and the Big Business of Entertainment’, Anita Elberse, Brilliance Audio, 2013.

A most interesting study of the Blockbuster strategy found in the worlds of professional sports, music, TV, movies and books. Written by Harvard Business School’s expert on the entertainment industry. Well worth the time to read or listen.

    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
