This is probably one of the top options for learning how to behave professionally on a film or TV set. It's a very thick, large form paperback with a wealth of information, and is written very, very well by two strong, famous professionals, Erin Gray and Mara Purl.

I sometimes can be slow to read, however I got through all 370 pages in 2 days because it was written so smoothly and was truly fun to read.

The information ranges from where to go first when you arrive, to the importance of being able
