4-0 out of 5 stars Faxian and the history of Buddhism
A Record of Buddhistic Kingdoms is a good reference source that takes into account the religious tradition of Asia as witnessed by Chinese Buddhist Monk Faxian.Although his travelogue is brief and appears more as a journal, one should not discount the succinct appearance because the contents and all 40 chapters are a wealth of information are an important piece of history that also implements significant figures who helped to contribute to the influence of Buddhism throughout the Asian landscape bridging a great relationship between the East and West, Alexander the Great, Kanishka, and Indian leaders Chandragupta and Asoka as well as what Faxian observed within the kingdoms in terms of the display of ritual, tradition, and community that Buddha initially encountered during his path of enlightenment at Sankasya Kingdom.

Overall, the electronic edition of this primary document provides readers the convenient access to refer to the source at any time. And the brief accounts along with the footnotes allow readers to easily find the definitions and explanations of what is being discussed.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good travelogue
Normally I love these ancient travelogues, but this is the worst one I've read yet. It follows a Chinese monk as he goes through China and India between 399 and 414. The translator wrote it in 3rd person, which makes it very impersonal. I can't imagine that it was written that way originally. The footnotes are so long and detailed that there are more footnotes than text. One chapter is half a page of text and 2 + 1/2 pages of footnotes. The book isn't very long, and when you remove all of the footnotes and the long introduction, there isn't much left about the journey. This book is more for scholars of ancient China than someone who just wants to read an entertaining travelogue.

Product Description
An excerpt from the book -

They, with their driver, went down Ramkhamhaeng Road singularly in
the scope of their thoughts but conditioned into repudiating their
aloneness. It was an early Bangkok morning with a new day tripping over
the corpse of the earlier one the way dogs on the Bangkok sidewalks
were walked on. It was early in the relationship of the two passengers
and this nascent association contained the complex and awkward
ambiguity of not being clearly professional or personal and he and his
prostitute-model were tripping into each other. When she put her hand
on his leg he would stiffen and both his legs would slightly slant away
from her but when she removed her hand and kept it away from him for
some minutes he would put it back there closer than ever to his thighs.
Even he had to admit his actions made no sense given the fact that he
flaunted her, and others like her, wherever he went; but it was part of
the game of being desired. Although he wasn't even conscious that such
a game was being played, she was fully cognizant of these subliminal
calculative moves and how a woman was played.She knew that she was
desiring him more as a consequence.She also knew that being desired
required adhering to the rules of withdrawing from the neediness of
wanting to be linked to a man and of transforming herself into the
metamorphoses of self-contained fantasies that he would desire.

Product Description
An excerpt from the book -

He assumed that in being exhausted from sporadic fits of sleep
and wakeful spans of dull, hypnagogic thoughts matching the
inertia of his confinement he would finally become ensconced
there, in this train jostling him around, and at last fall
asleep. This was his hope; but in the meantime there was a
languid battle with insomnia and inordinate time that he, from
his "exalted tomb," disdainfully sullied.A god watching the
cookie wrappers that he was emptying into his mouth from the
upper coffin glided downward like the leaves of a deciduous
tree; he was remembering happier times and in this confined
space it was taking him to the edge of madness. It seemed to him
that society lied about it all: motherhood as the continuation
of playing with dolls, manhood epitomized by competition and
money, and old age the enjoyment of spending time reliving the
incidents of the past. Children were not nice neat dolls to
which one claimed ownership, manhood had to be more than having
a heart attack from the stress of making a living and leaving
all to one's widow, and old age, if it came, had to be besieged
with problems of the present, which would be less painful than
recalling happy times that fleeted by and had no chance of being
resumed once again. This moving world that he was in was like
the 67,000 mile an hour projectile of the Earth, and he sullied
it (definitely the floor of the Pullman car, but perhaps the
world as a whole) with the crumbs of his fruit pastries. He just

As the religious measured the ethics of their actions by those of the characters in their scripture, so was time (its tattered relationships, its solitary and jejune rides in coffins on board trains) a fiction to mark individual and collective progress. ...

Product Description
The distribution of a motion's picture's "profits" is, for most filmmakers, a murky, labyrinthine domain ruled by studio/distributor accountants and lawyers. "Movie Money" unravels, demystifies, and clearly explains the film industry's unique, arcane creative accounting practices. It examines a film's various revenue-consuming components and presents numerous film-industry definitions of gross and net profits and the many ways in which these figures are calculated. It also provides in-depth discussions of various aspects of profit participation terminology, accounting practices, and deal practices along with chapters on audits, claims, and negotiating tips and tricks. This Second Edition greatly expands the first edition's coverage of basic cable providers and new rulings regarding motion picture industry financial reporting practices and new material on vertical integration (i.e., studio self-dealing). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars They wrote the book on Hollywood Accounting
I'm not an accountant, so there's always going to be a limit to how much of accountancy I understand. However this book does as good a job as possible explaining the principles (or lack of them) and terminology associated with "Hollywood Accounting".

The book also contains a series of dramatized examples, following a simple story, complete with a "Hollywood Ending"!

Personally, I can't wait to see the movie, and I would welcome a good sequel. :D

5-0 out of 5 stars Serious stuff if you are serious about distribution
This is serious stuff!Written by three of the top "Profit Participation Auditor-Accountants" in Hollywood, this is a very informative, very scary inside look at how the legendary "Hollywood Accounting" really works.They also go into why it is the way it is...and that does give you some sympathy for the devil.It's not an easy read since we're talking about legalese and accounting strategies here, so it's not for the casual hobbist.I found it absolutely fascinating and extremely useful since I consider myself a serious filmmaker who wants to know what a good deal and a bad deal may look like...and want to make some money with my movies, not just hit a few festivals and it end up a trophy on the shelf.If you're serious, this is a must read...but bottom line:Don't try to do this yourself.Even the everyday lawyer or CPA will get bamboozeled if they don't have a movie biz experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Follow the Money!
This book will help anyone who desires to learn how their box office ticket dollars are spent. The authors take you step by step through a standard profit participation agreement. I feel the authors are not as aggressive as they should be hollywood's unethical "creative accounting". The distributors and the audit firms would like artists to believe that the lack of knowledge is why many artist are "cheated" out of their net profits or as Eddie Murphy stated "monkey profits". All net profit participants should read this before they listen to their lawyers and auditors. Many auditors and attorneys are willing participants in the "net profit scam"! ... Read more
