5.0 out of 5 stars Grip book & DVD right on target 3 July 2007
By J. Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I hit the dvd first and it was great! Very fast paced, but that's what is needed. Don't have a lot of time to sit and watch tv. Author goes over each piece of equipment so by the end of the dvd, you've been introduced to a very large selection of grip stuff and know how it's used.

The book then goes more in depth and more about how to act and how to get along with the others around you. Very Very valuable stuff here even if you're just dabbling in the business.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grip Book by Uva 3 Jan 2007
By G. Packman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is what the title says. I think it is missing some of the older industry jargon but that probably doesn't matter. This is the only grip book you'll need. The only way to learn more is to actually work on a set.

5.0 out of 5 stars It should be called "The" Grip Book. 1 Oct 2007
By Waterman Digital Media - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Michael Uva knows his stuff. Stimultaneously entertaining and informative. In addition to expertly covering the grip business, Mr. Uva strongly advocates working hard, working safe, and being honest. His own personal success indicates that he practices what he preaches. The grip book covers not just what the equipment is and how it works, but how the grip should work and interact with other professionals on the set, (even the ones with which the grip might rather not interact). Much of the advice given in this book could be just as easily applied to any area of life where a person wants to be successful and respected when working with others. I haven't read a better book on this subject. It's required reading for anyone who grips for us unless they went to one of the better film schools, in which case it's not required, just recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for noobs and experienced alike 10 Sep 2007
By Zorko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A wealth of information. Good for helping newbies get familiar with the equipment and how it's used. Great illustrations and DVD. Experienced grips will find the TOT's (tricks of the trade) helpful as well. The "Grip Rap" theme song is hilarious.
