    What a Producer needs to know...

    This book is what a producer needs to read! I've spent the last year on the job, right out of school, learning what I thought a producer did. This book has helped to reinforce some of the good habits I've picked up along the way and helped to (hopefully) steer me clear of some of the bad ones as well. Easy, enjoyable read!
