5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect starter for future stars and models
I do photography. I have met more than a few wanna-be models and their mothers. I have given away a more than a few copies of this book. It gives people an idea of the cons and crafty business practices that really happen. so many are so eager to be in the glamor business they do not do any research.

1.0 out of 5 stars OBVIOUS AND SENSATIONALISTIC
Of course it is essential to be informed about this and any industry in which one plans to become involved. But this book is intended to be sensational, to scare poor parents into fearing for their daughter's (or son's) safety and psychological health. All good parents already fear this. Some step-by-step instruction and real information on how to find your place in the...

This review is from: The Glam Scam: Successfully Avoiding the Casting Couch and Other Talent and Modeling Scams (Paperback)
I do photography. I have met more than a few wanna-be models and their mothers. I have given away a more than a few copies of this book. It gives people an idea of the cons and crafty business practices that really happen. so many are so eager to be in the glamor business they do not do any research. They are unaware that LEGAL agencies in California must register with the California Department of Industrial Affairs and are listed online at the state site.

IF you have a friend considering modeling give them this book. IF you are considering modeling please read it.

But this book is intended to be sensational, to scare poor parents into fearing for their daughter's (or son's) safety and psychological health. All good parents already fear this. Some step-by-step instruction and real information on how to find your place in the industry, how to deal with agents and clients and sensible advice on communicating effectively with your teenager (who wants to model) would be far more helpful

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Important Book Written On The Industry, February 12, 2000
This review is from: The Glam Scam: Successfully Avoiding the Casting Couch and Other Talent and Modeling Scams (Paperback)
MUST HAVE This book is crucial for your collection! The Glam Scam should be on every single bookshelf, regardless of which aspect of the industry you work in.
Enough praise cannot be given for the value... the back blurbs are not hype -- this is the most important book to read for anyone even considering a career in the Entertainment Industry.
Exceptionally well organized, and packed with informative content... Mr Joseph is well spoken as he not only covers the monetary scams, but also those of a more dangerous nature.
If you don't believe the praise, visit your local library and read just the first few pages -- I can guarantee you'll be racing to pick up your own copy... and when done, you'll feel grateful you did as well. After years in the industry, I continue to praise this work, and refer to it often when guiding others in the industry...
This book is a definite Must Have on very single bookshelf...
