Could not stop

If you are just getting started in the industry, with no help, this is the perfect book.

No frills how-to guide.

This is an excellent resource guide for anyone who wants to get into modeling. It's a very easy read and lays it out for you in simple terms. It basically says "do this", "don't do this". It's also a great book to read for parents who are interested in getting children involved in the industry. A great value overall.

Good Book!!

I beleive this book was the best book I have ever read on modeling. It was detailed, honest, and it gives you a step by step guide to starting your modeling career. If your interested in modeling and dont know where to start, get this book. I took Roshumba's advice and I am now with Ford modeling agency!

The Book and the Model are Fabulous!

I have over twenty years experience in the modeling business and worked with many models in my career. Roshumba Williams is not only one of the sweetest people you will ever meet she is also a wonderful role model for young women. She has always gone out of her way to help young people and give great advice to those interested in modeling. I think her book is articulate and insightful. I would definitely recommend "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Being a Model" to anyone thinking about a career in modeling. It's a great investment and could save thousands of dollars that most schools and agents might charge to those that have no knowledge of how to get started.

This model wannabe is an idiot no more thanks to Roshumba!

My review of the Complete Idiot's Guide to Being a Model has to be prefaced. I, like everyone else, have always been fascinated with the world of modeling. When I was a kid, I told my mom that I wanted to take modeling lessons so that I could "stop slouching" and carry myslf better (things that she usually admonished me about). In reality, I just wanted to learn how to strut down the catwalk like Christie Brinkly and Nikki Taylor. As I started to learn more about the moves, I got curious about what it would really be like to be a model. Unfortunately, I never found out, but I always wondered. Then, I saw Roshumba's book at Barnes and Nobles. My childhood curiousity overcame me and I purchased the book on the spur of the moment. It was one of the smartest impulses I've given into in a long time. Rosumba wrote the book in such a way that I truly understand what I would have been in for if I'd pursued modeling. It's a straightforward book interlaced with lots of humor and some great illustrations! I now know what to do and what not to do; who to be wary of and who to trust; how to find the creme de la creme of support and how to avoid the scum, and more! I will probably never become a model (unless, of course, a 5'3" model becomes the in look), but Roshumba's book makes me feel that if the opportunity ever arises, I'll be ready.
