For nayone wanting to take their career to the next level, this book is the one to get. What makes it so amazing is that I feel as if the author is sitting right across the table telling me everything I need to know.
In the back he's listed a list of angencies so when I get to L.A. I know exactly what to do, and who to go to. I recommend this book to any actor not living in L.A. who hope to get their one day.

This book saved me months of research on getting started in Hollywood! I immediatley was able to start submitting myself for PAID acting work. Being from out of town, coming to L.A. can be overwhelming -- I had no idea where to start. The best part is this book has the complete list of Agents in the back so I didn't have to buy the 'Agencies' book separately. If you are new to L.A. then I highly reccommend this book!
