Default I just read Steve Martin's autobio...

..."Born Standing Up" that has already been mentioned several times in this thread.

I was in Santa Rosa California this month for a whole week of gigs, and I wound up every night at the local Borders bookstore, where I could read any book off the shelf for free in one of their comfy leather chairs.

Martin's book should be required reading for anyone with aspirations to - or already neck-deep in - showbiz. It's a long, bumpy & brutal road, and Steve tells it well. From busking with a banjo to lonely limosines, he's been there and done that.

Run to your local bookstore and buy this book. I finally did.
