This Book is one of the most well written accounts of what it's like to be involved in a Television/ Movie production. It's not written soley for the actor, either. Mr. Tucker uses easy-to-understand examples, and projects ideas in a language ANYONE can understand. There's no reason this book shouldn't be a part of your collection. For the Entertainers out there I say BUY THIS BOOK! It's truly a worthwhile investment, and it's the book that inspired me to better myself as an entertainer.
