It’s all laid out for you clearly in a way that’s not preachy or condescending. If you want to work in the entertainment industry via writing, production, business, etc. This book will actually tell what you have to do, what it’s like doing it, and how to do it in the best way imaginable. The writer wrote this was a TV executive for CBS and Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. Basically, taking her own experience, as well as other’s journey to success. Carefully analyzing those who succeeded in flying colors, and those who just didn’t know what to do. Then putting it all into this book. I even got to talk to her about being an intern, moving to LA, & good versus bad cover letters and resumes. So, things like being an intern, being a production assistant, how to make a resume, the importance of cover letters, how to survive LA, and what to do when you get an opportunity. All of it is laid out in the book, not only that, but the chapter on cover letters an resumes SAVED my life. So, if anything that I just wrote interests you, then this book is definitely worth the price!
Carole Kirschner's book is amazing in that it not only gives you words of wisdom and advice from a woman who has been in the industry for years, but it is also a very enjoyable read. While it may reside closer to the self-help genre than to a memoir, traces of her personality are embedded in the pages making the reader want to read and learn more.
I would recommend this book to a friend and am very happy to have come across it at this stage in my life.
As a student at The University of Alabama who possess the desire to have a long and successful career in the entertainment industry, this book has done wonders for me. For instance, it has provided me with valuable information on the many positions and jobs in "The Industry." From internships, to entry level jobs, and higher level executive positions. Also, this book has provided me guidance on how to navigate the entertainment industry and how to conduct myself as a professional in it.
Overall, I have learned a great deal from this book. I recommend it to anyone who possess the desire to have a career in entertainment industry. The book is carefully written, thoughtful, and a direct reflection of the realities of climbing the ladder to the top, closer to a dream career. - Michael

As someone who couldn't afford to pay for film school fees, this was a must-read!
Absolutely loved it from start to finish and will re-read it again and again for years to come.
