KIRKUS REVIEW

A career in show business is addressed to the few who believe they have personality plus whatever it takes. It is interesting reading for those who dream about the stage and never think of all the hard-headed ""business"" that goes into it. The stepping-stones (models, etc.), the devices, publicity, agenting, and such topics are covered with plenty of reference to the glamour names. The what-not-to-do is more important to those who are looking for this colorful type of career. There is a sprightly foreword by Abel Green, editor of Variety, who feels that this book gives an amazingly comprehensive analysis of all branches of ""show biz"". Angles for creators, interpreters, performers and executives.
