    A no-bs book

    I saw a poster for this book that read: THE BOOK YOUR AGENT DOESN'T WANT YOU TO READ...so I HAD to read it. Perfect timing too...I never realized before how much I didn't know about agents and what I do and don't have control over..

    The ultimate actor's survival guide

    This is a must-have tool for any aspiring actor. Landing an agent is not the real work. 'Working' your agent is the key to success. Nancy Rainford's book helps empower actors to be pro-active and effective in a world that typically 'victimizes' them. Take control and buy this book!

    The Tell All Book of the Century

    This book is smart, funny, direct and humane. Nancy Rainford's experience in so many aspects of the entertainment business can now benefit us all. It should be required reading for every actor. I wish I had read it years ago.

    I laughed, I cried, I fired my agent.

    A simple, straightforward guide. I wish someone had written this ten years ago and saved me a lot of time. Do any of your actor friends a big favor and buy them a copy of this smart little book.
