This is a book that I wish I had read years ago. Sadly, most of the info in the book I have learned the hard way. Nonetheless, this is a book any improvisor should pick up.
It's not so much a theory book, like Keith Johnstone's Improv, or Del Close's Truth in Comedy. This book is more of a self-help book. The authors do not clown around, they are serious about improv, and clearly show the desire to enlighten other to improve using what they already know.
This book helps performers with low self-esteem issues, inflated egos, and even brushes upon ettiquite for the performer off stage.
