To the point and perfect for the beginning actor. I knew next to nothing about acting before I read this book, now I'm much more informed and know which steps to take.

I found this book full of professional insight and advice. Some of the websites are out-of-date. I wish I had read this when I was younger. It breaks down all the business of show business, and how to do it like a pro.

I really enjoyed this Dummies book. I found it very useful with information and internet links which are not out of date. Great for basic knowledge of the industry.
