I remember the biggest shock out of acting school for me what not how hard auditioning was, but how hard GETTING an audition was. No one ever talked about that, and it doesn’t matter how good you are if you can’t get in the right rooms. This book was so refreshing because it spoke to all of that and more!! As a struggling actor, it really spoke to my own adversities in a way that no other book or teacher has. I love how Jenna talks about all the nitty gritty little details that get in the way but no one ever talks about. I also love hearing the stories of perseverance from all the actors. Acting is hard, and it was so great to know I’m not alone in this. I truly love Jenna Fischer. I mean I loved her so much as Pam on the office, but after this book she is one of my idols. This should be required reading at theatre schools everywhere. Also for anyone who wants to understand the life of an actor better.
