    Story
    "Pretty good for your first book!"

    The book was written fairly well but had several repeating instances. Literally word for word repeating as if the reader had to restart the recording?

    This guide definitely focuses on the negative aspects of the business instead of fluffing up the industry.

    Worth the price in every way!

    Story
    "A true to life portryal of one's lessons learned"
    Where does Don't Do What I Did rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As far as other audio books go, this was one that hit close to home very hard. I found myself nodding my head a lot of times due to agreeing with the truth the author had to say.


    What about Alex Wagner’s performance did you like?

    I liked the ease and natural flow in Alex's voice. It was a very peaceful read and easy to follow. Great speaking voice, very soothing and relaxing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is definitely a book i wanted to listen to in one sitting. It was short and to the point, no fluff at all and very informative and entertaining. It's packed with such vital information on making it in the freelancing film world.


    Any additional comments?

    Being a person who has freelanced in the film and television industry for the last 5 years, I found myself learning more about the business, and was also quite shocked at the similarities in the stories and experiences mentioned in the book.

    "could have been told in stories"

    Could have been more entertaining or comical. but it gets the points across. Certainly worth the $7 i paid for it. It has me more focused than ever on creating my own projects, building my brand, diversifying my income etc. Definitely a cheap must read for someone who doesn't have insights or connections to industry professionals.
