Reviews

"This is the best book on acting written in the last twenty years." --from the introduction by David Mamet

"Simple, clear and consise--just what was needed. A deeply interesting and valuable piece of work." --Sidney Lumet

"This terse and lucid handbook might well be for the actor what Strunk and White's The Elements of Style is for the writer." --John Guare

"This book is wonderful. It is clear, direct, and to the point, with none of the hokum that accompanies most books on the theatre, especially about acting. I learned an enormous amount." --Robert Benton

"This beautifully written book offers a clear guide to the most profound acting technique I know. Every young actor should read it, re-read it, and then keep it under his pillow." --Lindsay Crouse
