For three decades and still going strong, “How To Be A Working Actor” has helped actors in training and working actors on their career paths and is still recommended by educators and celebrities as the must-read for achieving success in the Business.

No other book has addressed the valuable advice shared by co-authors Mari Lyn Henry and Lynne Rogers as well as the hundreds of industry professionals who contributed their expertise in one-on-one interviews.

Actors have learned how to assemble a professional wardrobe, prepare for photo shoots, create resumes as marketing tools, the dos and don’ts involved in meeting with agents, casting directors and managers, using the internet to promote their talent and discover new opportunities to find jobs, and discover how to find work in regional markets and much much more.

Tony winning actor Joe Mantegna (Dave Rossi, “Criminal Minds”) wrote a foreword for the 5th edition. “How To Be A Working Actor” is one of the most comprehensive books on show business I’ve ever read. I found it informative, entertaining, and I would highly recommend it as an addition to any actor’s library.

Darryl Hickman, actor, writer, producer, director, author; “If I were to label one book a ‘must read’ for anyone aspiring to a successful career in the business, its “How To Be A Working Actor.” A survival kit for veteran or neophyte, this brilliantly researched book is a treasure trove of useful information, tips on career management, and informed guidance for the professional actor. The authors deserve a standing ovation. Bravo!”

Lorca Peress, Theatre Director, Teacher, Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute and NYU-Strasberg Studio believes that the book is one of the “best tools of the trade for actors and teachers in professional studios. I have been referencing this book and suggesting it to my students in my audition and business of acting classes for 15 years!”
