    I love Jenna Fischer! I only picked this book up because I love her so much, so, obviously, none of the information pertained to me. However, she writes beautifully and conversationally without condescending to you. If you were an aspiring actor, this would be the book for you!...

    This is written by Jenna Fischer who played on the hit show "Office" for years. I was hooked on that show for a long time which gave me an interest in reading her book. It's written mainly as a guide for those who are bitten by the acting bug and really as a way to help them with tips and ideas on h...

The first couple chapters are clunky and full of "I took myself so seriously, isn't that silly?!" But after that she settles into it and...

    4.5 Stars.There was a time, I confess, when I desperately wanted to be on a sitcom. Okay, it was the '80s when there was no shortage of family sitcoms. Those kids on Growing Pains and Family Ties always looked like they were having so much fun! I reasoned that I was a kid who liked film and theatre ...

    I basically inhaled this fantastic book from Jenna Fischer and enjoyed reading about her life so much. This isn’t a book about a famous actor and their rise to fame and it isn’t a comedy biography, this is a handbook on how to make it as an actor. Jenna goes through the steps with informat...
