Safe Stardom is the perfect insiders guide for every parent with a child pursuing a career in the entertainment Industry, and can be read on many levels. It starts with the story of one mother and son, how they made it in Hollywood, and how, in the process, they changed the entertainment industry. It is also an invaluable tool and resource for parents and children wanting to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. It distills a tremendous amount of information that is helpful to parents and their children-information that the author, Robert Pafundi, has learned over the course of more than a dozen years as a talent agent, talent manager, and entertainment lawyer. Safe Stardom offers helpful advice concerning entertainment contracts, especially contracts involving talent agents and talent managers, and contains more than two dozen provisions that commonly appear in such contracts, along with commentary about the purpose, benefits, and drawbacks of different contractual provisions. However, Safe Stardom is much more than a book about entertainment law. It addresses a wide range of issues that relate to protecting our children in Hollywood, including protecting them from overly aggressive paparazzi and other predators. We all have a stake in protecting the children who work or aspire to work in the entertainment industry and this book will be one of the most valuable tools any parent could have.
