Review by: Glenn Newland on July 26, 2010 :
Nick Dager's collection of columns, in this informative book, chronicle the progress of digital cinema in a more comprehensive manner than I have been able to find anywhere else. In a complex technical and business environment he has managed to capture a great deal of nuance. He allows us to see the points of view from multiple key players and draw our own conclusions.
