Excellent advice book for screenwriters. Ms. Wallerstein frames a clear picture of the role agents play in supporting the writer in Hollywood.

I would absolutely recommend this book to the serious writer looking to take their project to production.

Very informative. It is like having coffee with an agent and having them just spill the beans on what to do and what not to do. It is a fast and easy read.

It gave a really clear look at the writer/agent/producer relationship and beyond, all in a very clear and honest way. I'm holding on to this book for later!
