5.0 out of 5 stars Tells it as it is, warts and all..., 3 April 2011
This review is from: TV: an Insider's Guide (Paperback)
This book tells it as it is. Perhaps some of the people who wrote the bad reviews have unrealistic expectations of career starting points? Do you think ANY of the crew of "The Sopranos" were on their first job? Perhaps a token runner, but anyone else? Forget it...

In honesty, some people people don't like hearing or reading truths that they don't want to hear. Some people won't appreciate the common sense because they think they know better, although anyone with a jot of common sense should just be pleased to have their knowledge confirmed! Others might not like the biographical sections, but surely you want to know what you might expect, right? I bet there wouldn't be half as many Java or C++ books sold if someone wrote an honest account of the life of a Java programmer...

If you want a well rounded approach for a career in TV, coupled with an account of a colourful life to date of a TV producer, then this IS the book for you.
