A while back I got to review a wonderful book called Secrets Your Textbook Will Not Tell You: About TV, Movies and Life by Sandy Fries and today I found out it’s gone on sale! The book showcases events that happened while Fries was working in the entertainment industry as a writer on many loved series that we nerds are quite familiar with. Fries worked with people such as Gene Roddenberry, Joseph Barbera and more!
“Secrets Your Textbook Will Not Tell You” is an inside look at the show business industry. For anyone planning to enter the entertainment business, this book has colorful and funny stories, valuable insights, and helpful tips and tricks on how to succeed. Fries shares life hacks he learned by working with Sam Simon, co-creator of The Simpsons, Gene Roddenberry, creator of the original Star Trek television series, Joseph Barbera, co-creator of The Flintstones, and other celebrities he has known. This is a fascinating and fun book.Amazon description
