This book is a concise, insightful (and hilarious) A-to-Z handbook how to enter and succeed in the commercial acting world. The great thing about this book is that it is written by a successful commercial actor who also runs commercial casting sessions, so it is beyond credible. I look forward to putting all of Shaan’s tips and advice into action and booking tons of work!

I’m extremely thankful to own the book, since it puts everything I’ve learned in commercial classes (and more!) all in one handy place. I HIGHLY recommend this book!
