4.0 out of 5 stars great but..., 31 May 2011
Mamet here provides a exceptionally well written provocative view on the nature of acting. He spends a large portion of the book dismissing the method school of acting and destroys many concepts and techniques commonly used in theater. However, he spends very little time on how actors should actually act, which is rather unsatisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars cheesy title, great book, 31 May 2011
This book provides a comprehensive overview on how to successfully produce a film and it is written based around the checks that one has to write to get a film made. His cut the crap approach and concise writing style means that every page in the book contains essential information on everything from screenwriting to managing budgets. All fantastic except for a slightly weird rant at the end about how its necessary to be a good person to get ahead in the industry.
