I recently got Manoush's ebook and absolutely loved it. In addition to all of the great information there were all sorts of videos explaining details and how to information. As a blogger at [...] , I know the importance of videos and think they are the future of internet marketing. This book is packed full of great tips and information that will definitely help the marketing dept at your company, entrepreneurs, and bloggers. I'm already hoping she writes another e-book. Thanks Manoush!

This book is very well done. The author provides an intelligent and thorough presentation of the subject (being ready for the camera). I can't think of anything she left out, and it doesn't have any fluff put in there just to make it bigger. Apparently, Joshua Spanier, the Head of Media at Google, shares that opinion. He wrote the Foreword and his comments were very positive. The book delivers on the promises he made in his comments.

Let me establish a foundation for my review, so you know where I'm coming from on the subject of presentation.

Some years ago, I wrote a course on how to give a winning presentation. It definitely fills a need. Too many people who give live presentations have this misguided notion that Death by Powerpoint is somehow beneficial, but it does in fact isolate the speaker instead of connect the speaker to the audience. Powerpoint is not the presentation; at best, it's an audio visual aid. And the way it's typically used makes it worse than no aid at all. Nobody connects with a disembodied voice in the dark. In fact, this is a standard element in horror movies. And it's horrible for presentations. What presenters need to do instead is present themselves their ideas.

The same concept, of presenting yourself and your ideas, carries over into video. The same rules apply, except with video there are some additional ones. Just as it's a FAIL to be a talking head numbly reading PowerPoint slides to a live audience, so it is a FAIL to be a talking head talking numbly in front of the camera. Ms. Zomorodi explains how to look and sound good in front of the camera, whether you are recording a video for later distribution or are responding to a reporter who approached you on the courthouse steps.

At last - an affordable, savvy, concise, and easy to digest guide devoted to the ins and outs of being ready to be on camera from instances of a moment's notice to those of advanced planning. The e-book is peppered with Zomorodi's professional crafted informative and witty video insights and tips that create a truly robust - and more importantly - truly helpful e-book experience. Well done!

Especially helpful for a first timer on camera and for those who want to make their own videos they can be proud to show to clients and/or on their web site.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend! December 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
I was hesitant when I first ordered Camera Ready...but once I began watching the videos, I saw how helpful they really were. Manoush takes you by the hand through the learning process of being camera ready. There's so much great information here that wasn't ever covered in any of my acting classes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where can I see the videos? November 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
Very good book. Unfortunately I just downloaded the Kindle edition of Camera Ready. Nowhere was written that with this edition I was unable to watch any of the videos (essential examples) on my Kindle... Well, I downloaded the Kindle for PC and also in my Win 8 the same info came: can't show the video on this device... Any hints please?

Well, now I re-rated this book. Now I can see the videos, not through kindles (I have 2 different kindle fire and videos don't play in any one of them!) Also in the PC, they didn't run.
I wrote to the author and SHE ANSWERED QUICKLY AND HELPED ME WITH THE PROBLEM! Videos are played if you install the Kindle application in an iPad...
Congratulations to the author, really concerned with the customers...
