The book is hands down amazing, but i'm not sure why the pages were missing letters on several pages. Very annoying.. hard to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Actors advice June 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I highly recommend this book in our quest for the great parts as actors. I also recommend: Voice Lessons to Go by Vaccarino- a cheap way to get your singing lessons taken care of, because we've all had to sing at some audition, The Artsts Way by Cameron- a 12 week program to help you really focus and baby your creativity and abilities, Back Stage West- You've got to have it for audition info, and lots of great friends to support you through all the madness!

This is a fantastic book -- simple, powerful, effective. I studied with the author in person, in a series of classes one summer in Manhattan, and I have never *seen* such powerful work coming from actors -- in class or anywhere else. He's an amazing teacher, and absolutely none of it is diluted in this book. It will change the way you look at acting for the rest of your life. Craft puts power in the hands of the actor.
Michael Shurtleff started out as a casting director, and discovered some of the most revered names you know. He teaches you to be an *actor*, not just a reactor.

For me, this book completely eliminated all the mysteries surrounding auditions, but the book also serves as an important guide for actors to interpret scripts and bring new and complex things into their performances. We also get to read some really entertaining and informative stories about how such stars as Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, Ben Vereen, and Robert DeNiro got their starts. Definitely the sort of book to be re-read many times! I would also say that it is an outstanding book to use in class or independent study, for ANYONE involved with drama or film!

5.0 out of 5 stars kick ass book Dec 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
this book is one of the best i've read on the subject of acting. that's because it actually discusses acting and the auditioning process (not how to find an agent and further ones career)it focuses on the craft, not the career. also shurtloff includes interesting and sometimes comical antedotes from his career and the careers of other succesful people in show business(such as barbara streisand and deniro)in these stories he talks about mistakes he's made as well as strategies which worked effectively. there are also sections which show how to break down a scene and properly analyze whats going on. he does this buy showing conversations betweeen teachers and auditioners with actors. you should definatley by this book if you want to read something interesting that doesnt tell you the best way to find an apt in LA, good luck

5.0 out of 5 stars Just an excellent book Oct. 9 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The main thing and just the best in this book are the 12 Guideposts. They will help the actor enormous, to work on the figure, to make the role authentic and interesting. The practical applications, when he writes about different scenes makes it interesting to read thru the 12 principles. You will notice: there is writing an absolute Profi! You will profit not only for auditions, but for every drama, you will play!
