Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An invaluable Insider's Guide on landing that job you've always wanted in Hollywood! If you're looking to work in Hollywood, you need to read this book! No, make that commit these pages to memory! I can personally vouch from my own experience in the entertainment industry that everything Carole says is 110% true. Hollywood Game Plan is a full-proof guide on what you need to do to succeed in Hollywood, as well as the common mistakes and pitfalls to avoid. I only wish I had this book when I first started out. It would've saved me some grief, not to mention years of trying to figure out for myself what Carole explains in an inspiring 236 pages.
