The acting business is filled with people dreaming of a career in the field. Unfortunately, many would-be professionals seeking advice and sound insight often find books that merely sell the acting dream.

With Acting Is a Job: Real-Life Lessons About the Acting Business, Jason Pugatch goes beyond the perceived glamour of acting to provide a hilarious, heartrending, and honest overview of the acting life.

Insightful, funny, and extremely informative, Acting Is A Job is a road map for actors at every stage of their careers. I wish I had read it several years ago, when I first moved to the city. I'm grateful that I stumbled upon it now.
Jason Pugatch spells it out - the good, the bad, and the ugly...unions, contracts, agent meetings & representation, job hunting, grad schools, regional theaters, the film and television business, commercials, typeing, auditions...how they all work and what your options are, in specific detail. Pretty much every question I've had about the industry and how it works, what's expected of actors and what we should expect from the business has been answered for me in this book.
Actors need to be well-informed, and this book does just that, expertly. It's a no-nonsense, cut-to-the-chase, lay-it-on-the-line book that can only help you get a leg up on your career. It's quite possibly the best $20 I've ever spent.
