Présentation de l'éditeur

Are you young, eager, smart, and heading off to LA to make it big in the entertainment business? Time for a reality check: Leave your diploma at home, put your grandiose dreams on hold (where hopefully they'll get tired and hang up), and start by repeating the first rule of the industry: Who you work for is more important than who you are. Then leapfrog over everyone else by reading The Hollywood Assistants Handbook.

Written by two very sharp and successful assistants to HPPs (Hollywood Power Players), here are 86 lessons packed with a combination of blunt truth, insider humor, and juicy secrets that explain the unwritten rules of how to get a foot in the door and make all the right moves as you climb to the top. Here are the minimum-wage jobs that will put you in the path of HPPs. An annotated resume roundup. The clubs to frequent and the cocktails to order. Movies to watch and books to read (it's called homework). Dressing do's and don'ts. How to get on the Free List. A lineup of boss genres—the Horror Show, the Romantic Comedy, Mr. Action—and how to dodge the tirades that will soon be hurled your way, along with the proper outlets for venting. Plus, the ins and outs of your most important tool, the telephone—when to listen in (always!), who to put through and who to put off, and your new best friend forever, the Plantronics CS70 cordless headset.

With its hilariously snarky tone—the gate-keeping quiz is "How to Tell if You're a Moron Who Should Pack Up the Corolla and Move Back Home"—The Hollywood Assistants Handbook is as baldly entertaining for everyone who loves reading about Hollywood as it is indispensably practical for the job-seeker.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for an agent desk 31 juillet 2011
Par Emily Cook - Publié sur
As a production assistant, I found some of the material useful. I think it's more for a development office or an agent's desk.
It's a good book to help people decide if they really want to enter the entertainment industry.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Adequate for basics, but not first book on the shelf. 22 septembre 2013

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This was actually the first book I had ever read when preparing for my career search in the talent agent realm. There were a few reasons for this. First of all, I knew so much that this was a beginning stage of breaking into the career (if not the mailroom, of course). Second, it's an easy read. A concise 208 pages broken into 86 separate chapters. I love reading books like that because it's easy to feel accomplished when you crack away at 5 chapters in a day in your spare time! Third, it seemed like a good way to get a broad perspective on what it's all about being an assistant, or the agent itself. Finally, and most importantly, I found myself in a situation where I could put these rules to use, which made them much easier to comprehend and capitalize upon.

The book is broken into 5 major parts that serve to lead you to situations as they would (supposedly) happen in your actual career. As we know, nothing is predictable. I did find some of the lingo to be interesting and good to know, though I'm not sure everything they say is important in the book really is.

A lot of the content itself is nothing shocking, but it does allow you to consider whether this is something you really want to consider as a starting point of a career. Look, you might not love it, but it's temporary, as long as you stick to it and give it your all at least.

Mostly, just keep conscious of the lessons and take notes on what you really need to. That's subjective to everyone, of course. For me, I was unfamiliar with some of the terminology used on occasions, so I made a point to note that. However, I already know how to deal with certain personalities, and I don't get star-struck, so those sections I breezed by.

If you have the choice, I'd say to start, read The Agency, then The Mailroom, then this one only if you can start to apply the concepts while reading, or shortly after reading this. It's an easy and cheap read, so I wouldn't dismiss it altogether.

E! TV happened to feature the book in a short segment. I must say, it was an awful representation of the book. The book really is more geared towards being an assistant to an agent rather than directly to celebrities, as this segment seems to be geared towards. But hey, that's Hollywood.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

5.0 étoiles sur 5 HOLLYWOOD WORKPLACE REVEALED FINALLY 5 juillet 2008

I found the information to be very helpful in understanding the worlds of working in the entertainment industry. Having insider information on the Hollywood industry should provide guidance for people deciding if this is the work career place they want. I got the book out of curiosity about the industry that provides the public with amusement products. The information is well arranged and easy to understand. The publication does not hold back from warnings about making mistaken moves while working in Hollywood.
It comes across as a very useful workplace guide.

Not only was it an interesting read, but it provided very helpful and essential tips for surviving as an assistant in Hollywood. When I worked in LA, I found myself seeing a lot of truth to what Peter Nowalk wrote in this handbook. Definitely worth picking up!
