The Working Actor's Guide to Los Angeles 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

There are things in this book that I didn't even know I wanted to know. It's not only perfect for actors on every level of their careers but also for people new to LA and surrounding areas (as i was) and individuals interested in any aspect of the entertainment industry. If you buy one book on the 'business' in LA, this should be it. The resources listed are endless and opportunities jump right off the pages at you.
