VHS vs betamax, toploaders, video nasties, late fees, the art of adjusting the tracking. These are things only recently forgotten by society, along with the whole culture of the video rental shop.

This book, written by Jon Spira, is Spira's insider recollection of an industry which spanned from the early 1980s through the 2000s. It has everything you could want from a book on video shops - corporate sleaze, indie hijinks, triumph, failure, grown adults being dragged out of shops by their ears, and film geekery of the highest order.
