I will say though that the book didn't cover some of the secret sauce I was expecting. It tells you what you to do to be a successful film maker but doesn't exactly say what to do with the films you make. I was expecting some information about digital distribution through amazon, blip.tv, roku and other services you can get a few pennies through. He does say the best money making ideas aren't in this book and are already in your head and he is right about this. I already know how I plan to distribute and monetize so I didn't need that information anyway.
I think he is wrong about twitter though. He says something like "Don't cheat on twitter. When we see someone who follows 1,200 people and has 1000 followers we know what's up." It's the opposite for me. When I see some small time player who has 1,200 followers and only follows 120 people I think, "Wow, what a douche. This guy could care less about his fans." I use techniques to get followers and when I get a person following me who follows 134 people and has 12 followers I think I just struck gold!
I highly recommend this book though if you want to have a career making movies. It's very well written and a great value!
