Praise

“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
