This is a book to always keep handy in a cubbyhole at the end of your pinrail. - Steve Nelson, Dramatics "Stage Rigging Handbook should become a standard text for advanced technical students and all individuals concerned with the safe and proper maintenance and operation of stage-rigging systems." - Derek Hunt, Theatre Design and Technology
