Behind the camera, Andrew Jenks has captured the attention of young adults everywhere with his innovative MTV documentary series, World of Jenks. When asked about his inspiration for the show, Jenks said, "I want to tell the stories of my generation. I want to be a filmmaker that is able to capture what my generation thinks, how they act, and what they ultimately stand for."

Now fans of all ages will be able to discover everything they've ever wanted to know about Jenks, from growing up to becoming a renowned documentary filmmaker in this comprehensive photo-biography. How did he do it? By following his own rules for success-always be flexible, fake it till you make it, and never accept no.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Jenks, a successful, 26-year-old maker of documentary films, presents a slick but lively account of how he blew off film school, ignored naysayers, and transformed his lifelong dream into a career that so far includes two lauded feature-length movies and an MTV series (currently in its second season). Rather than focusing on the technical details of production, he takes a wider angle, interspersing engaging anecdotes about filming his various subjects (who have ranged from a teen living with autism and the residents of an old-age home to baseball manager Bobby Valentine) with personal comments. Also, while he does tuck in superficial platitudes, such as Fake it until you make it, he highlights personal qualities that will get anyone on their way, such as being bold, learning how to listen, and never taking no for an answer. Formatted in easily digestible paragraphs with both frequent changes of type color and size and a generous admixture of snapshots and stills, this success story offers encouragement to a wide audience.--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"
