Personally, I find focusing on higher consciousness ala David Hawkins to be more powerful, over the long run. In the short run though practical advice is more immediately useful.
I will absolutely look for that book.
Honestly, I bristled at my experience at first due to the behavior of the other extras, but then I looked over and saw Jason Segel and how he behaved and goofed off with everyone, and how he made the time fun for people. Thats when I remembered, and saw first hand that filmmaking is an enjoyable collaborative process, not a resume recitation.
