Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to read and very useful! I bought this three months ago and it's been very useful for any student interested in getting into the field as it covered a variety of topics. Most of all, it's written to be practical so you can understand what you're reading at first read and does focus on a lot of hard skills such as pitching and event planning as well. Good stuff!
