Format: Paperback
Mr. Black has obviously spent many hours honing auditioning techniques for various mediums, and the crux of this book, the actual auditioning technique, is invaluable. However, there are chapters later in the book which I feel are full of some of the most dreadful advice ever given to a young actor. Such as, don't be yourself in an interview: act like other people, hang around theater companies and agencies without appointments, and perform all of you audition pieces for fellow actors who may not know any more about acting than you. 90% of this book is great stuff, but the 10% that is not is so off base that it makes you question the rest.

An actor failing to audition well, fails to get hired! Then never gets to use his/her craft. This easy to read "handbook" gets you through each step of auditioning, in all the arenas (stage, movies, commercials). Mr. Wallachs introductions is poignant. Pay attention.

There are too many books on acting out there. This is definitely one every serious actor should have in their library. Really good stuff in here.
