The Complete Idiot's Guide to Being a Model-Roshumba Williams

This model wannabe is an idiot no more thanks to Roshumba!, November 9, 1999

My review of the Complete Idiot's Guide to Being a Model has to be prefaced. I, like everyone else, have always been fascinated with the world of modeling. When I was a kid, I told my mom that I wanted to take modeling lessons so that I could "stop slouching" and carry myslf better (things that she usually admonished me about). In reality, I just wanted to learn how to strut down the catwalk like Christie Brinkly and Nikki Taylor. As I started to learn more about the moves, I got curious about what it would really be like to be a model. Unfortunately, I never found out, but I always wondered. Then, I saw Roshumba's book at Barnes and Nobles. My childhood curiousity overcame me and I purchased the book on the spur of the moment. It was one of the smartest impulses I've given into in a long time. Rosumba wrote the book in such a way that I truly understand what I would have been in for if I'd pursued modeling. It's a straightforward book interlaced with lots of humor and some great illustrations! I now know what to do and what not to do; who to be wary of and who to trust; how to find the creme de la creme of support and how to avoid the scum, and more! I will probably never become a model (unless, of course, a 5'3" model becomes the in look), but Roshumba's book makes me feel that if the opportunity ever arises, I'll be ready.

I was surprized to get this book on modeling, and it had no photographs. It had advice that any model agency would give you with a simple phone call. I would not reccomend it at all.. sorry...

A boring read... it looks cheap and it has NO PHOTOS, March 16, 2004

These "tips" seem outdated and unrealistic. I would have loved to have seem some examples of what to do and what NOT to do, as far as posing, a portfolio, and meeting agents. It seems like it was written very fast, and sloppy, with no practical advice, and no photos in the book at all...
