4.0 out of 5 stars how to REALLY survive in the UK media world - have a sense of humour ;-), 9 Jun 2013
This review is from: How to Get Into and Survive Film, Advertising and TV post-production (Paperback)
for anybody that actually has survived in the film, advertizing or tv post world then this book is a real laugh - as many of the incidents described will be all too familiar - so its a bit like the novel "E" for those familiar with "the madness". That the author herself has survived all these years is also proof that a sense of humour - aptly visible in the book - are the way through. Now for newbies to the industry, which i suspect were the intended audience - yes this will introduce them to the *textual truth* but even more importantly *sub-textual reality* - page after page you get these wittily told stories containing great advice, but below the surface, the avid reader will hopefully realize that the essential requirement is a macabre sense of humour, capable of finding even the most insane crisis, just what they are: ridiculous and therefore hilarious. At either level this book is a most edifying read, although as an old hand, i would also thoroughly recommend it to those who can enjoy the memories!
