They say that the one rule in Hollywood is there are no rules. There are, however, a series of "conventions" that exist, that if properly adhered to, will significantly smooth that otherwise rocky road to a career in film and television.

The truth is, Hollywood is held together by a very delicate yet complex fabric, and the surest way to get in the inside is to know what's expected of you, and to behave accordingly.

Highly respected within the Hollywood establishment - the authors of The Hollywood Rules have attained worlwide noteriety with their combined feature film credits. So why anonymous? Why pass up on the book tours, talk shows and advantages of fame? The filmmakers who wrote the Rules utilize them on a daily basis in order to make their living. By giving you these codes, the authors are virtually sharing with you the secrets to beating the system - a system that typically takes at least a decade to master. To expose their identities to those on which they practice these dictums would be like going into a gunfight without cover.
