"Where was this book when I was starting out? A fantastic, fun, informative guide to breaking into, and more importantly, staying in the TV writing game from the guys who taught me how to play it."
—Terence Winter, Coexecutive Producer, The Sopranos

"Goldberg and Rabkin write not only with clarity and wit but also with the authority gleaned from their years of slogging through Hollywood's trenches. Here is a must-read for new writers and established practitioners whose imagination could use a booster shot."
—Professor Richard Walter, Screenwriting Chairman, UCLA Department of Film and TV

—Janet Evanovich

"With sharp wit and painful honesty, Goldberg and Rabkin offer the truest account yet of working in the TV business. Accept no substitutes!"
—Jeffrey B. Hodes and Nastaran Dibai, Coexecutive Producers, Third Rock from the Sun
