Kyra Sedgwick "A great and resonant canyon of thanks to Philip Carlson for his invaluable work with a generation of young talent including me." Billy Crudup "Philip Carlson is one of the wisest people on the subject of building a career that will last. Luck didn't have him representing New York's top character actors; wisdom, intelligence, patience and loyalty did. He was, and is, as good as it gets." Tim Blake Nelson "Philip Carlson was my 'Guide in shining armor!' Smart, honest and hardworking, this book is his thinking and experience on a shelf." Idris Elba "I was so fortunate to have found Philip when I did. I can't imagine a better introduction to the world of acting and the business of getting there." Liev Schreiber
