Inability to adapt is the new illiteracy and freelancing is becoming America's new normal. What 2008 taught America was not just that derivatives are dangerous and the housing market doesn't rise forever. It also taught us that survival requires juggling and pivoting, two skills that any freelancer is forced to acquire if they want to keep paying their rent. Adapt or Die is a mix of information, tricks and advice for all the freelancers out there, and the ones who will be stepping onto that playing field as they graduate from college. Written by a freelance writer who has spent the past two decades covering Hollywood and the world of pop culture and fashion, their tips for survival are laced with gossip and references to the famous as well as what they call the "secret celebrities" whose paths they have crossed. Consider this an entertaining how-to manual for anyone with ambition and no road map.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The dialogue is straight from the hip, with Wolper confidently lampooning the cult of celebrity in a town where the next best thing to knowing Jack Nicholson is knowing a great story about him."
-Publishers Weekly on Carol Wolper's The Cigarette Girl

"Wolper, who got her start working for uber-producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer and has written scripts for CBS, FX and HBO, knows Hollywood and has seen the power rich men wield up close. The story of Henry and his wives is a perfect tale for a modern Hollywood update and Wolper gives it a fun witty spin. This is a perfect beach read for anyone headed somewhere warm for a mid-winter break or, for those not traveling, the perfect book to lose oneself in on a dreary day. ABC is already adapting the novel for TV."
-The Hollywood Reporter, THR's Top Five Novels of 2012
