Very good book

Breaking into Televsion is one of the most useful books I have ever read. I just started an intership working for my local Senator. My friend who wants to get into television gave me this book to read before I started. Wow, this is great imformation! There is advice from just about everone in the television business who stated out as as interns. There is also advice from people who now are incharge of inters. If you are an intern or are planning on interning this is a very useful book.

This book is a MUST for anyone even HOPING for a job.

Breaking into Television is a MUST HAVE book. Thisbook focuses on the do's and don't's of interning, with helpful and funny advice from top Exec's like the VP of MTV and Leeza. The book is cleverly broken up into "Channels" instead of chapters in which a large variety of important issues are discussed. Among these are how to go about getting an internship, sexual harrassment and the "almost die for your internship daily" attitude. I wish I would have had this book while interning- I would probably be a lot further in my career if I had! This book also stresses the importance of networking and establishing contacts! If you are a high school or college student- start doing this immediately! This book is the perfect guide to bettering your life by starting EARLY! Breaking into Television tells you how to become part of the most competetive business around- and with advice from the people in television, how can you not become a success? Run, don't walk, and buy this book NOW! Parents- this is a must for any high school or college kid. Help them get a jump on the next person!With this book, you can't lose!

No student, of any major, should be without this book.

The title of this book may mislead perspective readers. It is a how to book for any intern, not just those trying to break into television. There are over 100 media, pr, and advertising executives quoted in this book. However, the anecdotes and advice they offer should help secure an internship and probably a job in any field. This is the bible for prospective interns and no student should be without one.
