4.0 out of 5 stars A good primer May 24 2000
This book offers a wide variety of information on various acting styles and techniques. It provides the reader with a virtual history of acting. Though there is much information, much of it is not practical. Much of the information is in the form of exerpts from other books. There is no way to practically apply the information given in "Actors on Acting" without reading the entire book that the article being read comes from. This is more difficult because many of the actors quoted do not have books available. This book however is an excellent primer. A person begining to explore the craft of acting can find styles they would like to explore in greater depth without buying an entire book on that particular style. I recomend this book for anyone who is begining their study of the craft of acting.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Decent Book, Must Have Interest in Acting Sept. 29 2009
By J. Rossi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although this book is a vast collection of writings, it serves a relatively narrow interest for anyone who does not have a direct interest in the theater. It's been useful to me in that I've read two chapters for my acting class (which was taken simply to fulfill a requirement), and I was able to complete a very well-informed and organized report based on what I read in the book. However, I do not see myself using this book in the future except as perhaps a reference book when I'm asked about one particular famous actor/actress or another. But then, I could also buy the Encyclopaedia Britannica Britannica Encyclopedia (Encyclopaedia) and get a quick reference instead of several pages of things that I will not really care about again in the foreseeable future. Cost, however, prevents me from doing so.
