But to try and be positive I'll start with good things about the book: The author gives some useful information about the theatre industry and living in New York. His opinions on musical theatre in college/auditioning are really interesting and for me, that was my favorite section of the book (which makes sense since I'm a young adult who's looking to audition for schools soon). The author definitely has a unique voice when writing and makes the book interesting to read.
Bad things about the book: All the humor and the hashtag stuff is not my cup of tea. I think it's just my personal taste. I think most people would really like this book for it's humor, but I felt the author's funny tone and comments (in my opinion) take away from the useful info he's giving. This book was a lot of style/voice over content. I didn't learn a lot of new things from this book :( I wish I liked this book, I really wish but unfortunately, I would not recommend this book to anyone.
While many acting industry books teach the "ethically correct book smarts", this book teaches you the street smarts of the industry.
The final chapter of his previous twitter posts about annoying actors are hysterical, and you will laugh at his writing.If you are looking for a way to scare the pants off your starstruck kids, this is your book!Before you pay for headshots and book your kid on a grand tour for college auditions, you may want to read this first and save yourself a lot of money!
I'm obsessed with finding out the real identity of @Actor_Friend. I can't seem to find anything online, and believe me I've looked.
If you understand Sondheim in-jokes and care about what people think of you on Twitter -- this is the book for you!
I'd recommend it even if he/she/it hadn't selected my carefully crafted and brilliant tweet recollecting the moment I knew I was #blessed to #werk in the entertainment industry. Look for me in the Introduction. I couldn't sleep last night just knowing that Broadway luminaries like Ann Harada, Michael Riedel and Ben Sprecher will read my tweet while frantically searching for mentions of themselves.
The epilogue exposes Annoying Actor Friend as nothing short of a philosopher, holding a mirror up to our selfies, vibe requests and social media whoring. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and if you're the one he's making fun of, you'll probably have no idea because you're that self-absorbed. #buyit

Areas covered in the book were amusing but went over the top on trying to be too smug.
Beneath the snark are lessons that go beyond the life of working actors.Read more
