“In this book, Derek not only breaks down all the “rules” of the Hollywood game — so that you know how it’s played and don’t get kicked down the field — he also lays out the spiritual truths that will help you transcend them, tap into your true power, and fulfill your higher purpose. And that’s just the first few chapters!” -- Mark Harris, Producer, Crash (Academy Award for Best Picture)

 

"For years we’ve been conducting business and creating art under assumptions about the entertainment industry that are simply false. When we look at them carefully, we discover they don't even exist. Derek Rydall, in his important new book, challenges us to toss them in an instant; exchange them for a fresh world view whereby we can act and work out of our own true nature, whole and abundant. He tells us how. Read this book, do the exercises. Push past the tiredness that arises as your resistance chants 'It will never work! It will never change!' Walk right past that clever detractor and step into a new day." -- Lindsay Crouse, Oscar-nominated actress, House of Games, The Insider, The Verdict, Places in the Heart

Reading chapter after chapter not only brought me a greater understanding of self and why I am in this business, but it showed me how to have a sense of amusement about things that I took so seriously in the past that I just felt like giving up many times. Stick with it and remember who you really are. Acting isn't pretending ...acting is telling the truth. And attitude is indeed everything.” -- Kate Romero, President-CEO Guardian Angel Ent, Host of Spiritual Hollywood Radio Show, Author, "The End of the Anonymous Actor.”
