What the readers are saying:

Jahn HallAs a casting director and agent for many years, I think it’s so important now than ever for models to understand how the industry works and how to conduct oneself on and off set. Marvin has really broken down the hurdles and obstacles many new models must overcome and gives useful tips to avoid costly mistakes most models learn the hard way. Read this book, study It, and apply it to your work if you want to stand apart from the many models wandering without direction or guidance.

Alissa Ann While I recommend this book to all models, as a female model I can't tell you how informative and essential this book is. In an industry that can be filled with predators and sketchy people, Marvin's advice and insight comes across like the older brother who doesn't want anything bad to happen to you as you begin your journey into modeling and beyond. Marvin really cares for the reader and isn't afraid to tell it how it is which is so hard to come by in this industry. The transparency, the rawness and realness of this book is so refreshing!

Thomas MartiniI’ve been modeling for 3 years now and this book has really showed me that there is so much for me to do in my career to grow it to the level I've dreamed of. This industry can be very hard to break into and even harder to stay relevant and working so it’s really wonderful that someone like Marvin would share his mistakes and really give a peek behind the curtain of the modeling industry for our benefit. I recommend this book to anyone looking to begin modeling or someone who is looking for direction after modeling in different fashion markets like me.
