Being a Working Actor is written by veteran actor, Geoff Meed. There have been many other books written on the business of acting, but none by an actor as accomplished as he. His credits range from being a "name" in the television guest star world, to having performed in major supporting and starring roles in film. This is not a book on the technique of acting, but a career manual, beginning with tough questions and decisions you must make before you pack your first suitcase for Hollywood. Geoff Meed covers his 23 year career explaining little known facts and secrets on what to do, and what not to do, to provide the best chance of earning a career as a full time professional actor in film and TV. This is not a feel good, anybody can do it book, but an honest, truthful insight into what it takes to chase this elusive career, from beginning to end. What you really need to know, by someone who has actually MADE A LIVING at it. Compare Mr. Meed's credits to the other authors in this genre, and you'll get a pretty good sense that his knowledge borders on that of "expert."
