    Taking it to the next level

    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.<BR/><BR/>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.<BR/><BR/>Daniel Whitehurst, Actor<BR/>Orlando, Florida

    This book really helped me!

    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!
