Are you young, eager, smart, and heading off to LA to make it big in the entertainment business? Time for a reality check: Leave your diploma at home, put your grandiose dreams on hold (where hopefully they'll get tired and hang up), and start by repeating the first rule of the industry: Who you work for is more important than who you are. Then leapfrog over everyone else by reading Please Don't Touch the Celebrities! Written by two very sharp and successful assistants to HPPs (Hollywood Power Players), here are 99 lessons packed with a combination of blunt truth, insider humor, and juicy secrets that explain the unwritten rules of how to get a foot in the door and make all the right moves as you climb to the top. Here are the minimum-wage jobs that will put you in the path of HPPs. An annotated resume roundup. The clubs to frequent and the cocktails to order. Movies to watch and books to read (it's called homework). Dressing do's and don'ts. How to get on the Free List. A lineup of boss genres-the Horror Show, the Romantic Comedy, Mr. Action-and how to dodge the tirades that will soon be hurled your way, along with the proper outlets for venting. Plus, the ins and outs of your most important tool, the telephone-when to listen in (always!), who to put through and who to put off, and your new best friend forever, the Plantronics CS50 cordless headset. With its hilariously snarky tone-the gate-keeping quiz is "How to Tell if You're a Moron Who Should Pack Up the Corolla and Move Back Home"-Please Don't Touch the Celebrities! is as baldly entertaining for everyone who loves reading about Hollywood as it is indispensably practical for the job-seeker.

Peter Nowalk was born in New Jersey and is a graduate of Brown University. He worked as an assistant at an agency, production company, and major studio before becoming a writer. He resides in Los Angeles.
