The Actor's Life
- A Survival Guide
- Written by: Jenna Fischer
- Narrated by: Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson
- Length: 7 hrs and 29 mins
Jenna Fischer's Hollywood journey began at the age of 22 when she moved to Los Angeles from her hometown of St. Louis. She was determined, confident, and ready to work hard. So, what could go wrong? Uh, basically everything. The path to being a professional actor was so much more vast and competitive than she’d imagined. It would be eight long years before she landed her iconic role on The Office, nearly a decade of frustration, rejection, and doubt. If only she’d had a handbook for the aspiring actor. Or, better yet, someone to show her the way. Jenna wants to be that person for you.

This book is a great blend of personal memoir and very helpful and specific advice for acting! Jenna does a great job reading her own book aloud. I was riveted by this book - I couldn’t stop listening to it! Fantastic book for anyone - even those who are just curious about the actor’s life.
