Jenna Fischer, who rose to fame playing Pam on the hit NBC comedy The Office, offers up practical advice to aspiring actors who are setting out on their career paths in The Actor's Life: A Survival Guide. Using examples from her own career as well as those of fellow thespians', Fischer manages to be both realistic and encouraging. She doesn't hold back when detailing her years of struggling to make ends meet working day jobs, finding representation, and booking auditions (including one hilarious misstep where she tried to sneak into an audition she wasn't booked for), but she's also positive and inspiring, filling the book with quotes from famous actors about persistence paying off and failure being the road to success.
