Acting: Make It Your Business, written by an award-winning, veteran casting director, puts the power to land jobs and thrive in any medium - stage, film, TV, or the Internet - directly into the hands of the actor. This blunt, wise, and often hilarious guide overflows with cutting-edge audition, marketing, and networking strategies, combining traditional techniques with those best suited for the digital age. Well-known actors and powerful agents make cameos throughout, offering newcombers and working professionals alike a clear-eyed, uncensored perspective on survival and advancement within the entertainment industry.

"Huorous and witty . . . Actors everywhere who are trying to succeed in the business, young or old, on stage or on camera, in New York or anywhere in the world, take note: This is your road map."
- Bernard Telsey, casting director (Rent, Sex & The City: The Movie, Wicked)

"All the right questions asked and answered . . . and with a generous portion of good humor."
- Suzanne Ryan, casting director (Law & Order)

"Paul's book made me proud to be a part of the acting community in this business we call 'show.'"
