I truly enjoyed this beauty, it packs a lot of tips, wisdom, advice, etc within an seemingly small text Of course, you should also pay close attention to your other resources i.e your instincts, prior training but this is great if you can t get to certain resources, or pay for this, whatever As many other reviewers has mentioned this book does break down constant techniques and turn them from complicated to understandable I m relatively new to the acting realm mainly because I m just now getting back into auditions, monologues and what accompanies that I m of the jack of all trades kind of girl, because I love to write, create music, sing, produce, direct, and of course acting, but through it all when I wasn t getting any auditions, blah, blah I ended up just sliding away from acting, but still having that same love for it I needed something else quick, that I could afford and could keep with me on regular while learning than what I originally knew with having some sensible tips on issue I was suffering on This book was it, I suggest you read it, because it ll definitely come in high regard.
