From the Publisher:

Acting programs at universities, colleges, film schools, and thousands of other organizations around the world teach actors the nuances of their craft. A successful acting career, however, requires a savvy that has little to do with motivation, characterization, or stage presence. Countless new actors arrive in New York City every year overwhelmed by the city, unaware of the resources available to them, and unprepared for the business of acting. Thirty-year New York acting veteran Glenn Alterman has seen it all and now shares hard-earned career success secrets in An Actor's Guide—Making It in New York City.

From the Author:

An Actor's Guide—Making It in New York City starts at the beginning of an actor's New York experience, providing insider tips on matters such as finding an apartment, supporting oneself, experiencing city night life, and shopping. The book goes on to detail finding acting work and developing the tools of self-promotion a successful actor must possess. "There are many very talented actors who are unemployed, simply because they haven't learned yet how to market themselves effectively," Alterman observes.
