“A witty and complete guide . . . should be on every actor’s shelf right next to Stanislavsky.”
—Richard Schickel, film critic, Time magazine

“Acting in television commercials is a great way to break into the business, and Squire Fridell’s book is fun and informative. . . . A must for any aspiring actor.”
—Carol Burnett

By D Lee Inosanto on January 2, 2013
Format: Paperback
I am a member of SAG-AFTRA Union since 1987. I found out about Squire Fridell's book "Acting in Television commercials for Fun and Profit"--I read the 4th Edition--after Sam Longoria (independent filmmaker) recommended it on his Facebook page . I think this a must read for any actor whether he/she is pursuing a career in commercials or the business in general. I love his honesty, delivered in the most humorous and playful way...but his material is easy to digest. Most important, it speaks truths we can learn from, about the good times and even the dark times of chasing a career. Everyone can learn from his experience and go in with no false expectations in the commercial world and Hollywood in general. I also love some of the historical anecdotes about the union and how the business works. My favorite chapter is on "the Life of an Actor"...every actor should live and breathe this information into their soul.

Format: Paperback
Acting in television commercials for fun and profit is a really easy to read book. The book is divided in small sections within chapters making it really easy to read a couple of pages and easily resume it at another time. Squire Fridell, the author, has a lot of personal stories to go along with his experience that will save you a lot of time and money. Overall, a great read that keeps your interest from cover to cover. The only thing this book lacks are more personal exercises for acting, but that's not its selling point so I'll stop complaining there. Buy this book if you're interested in acting.
