Commedia dell'arte: A Handbook for troupes is very informative and well writen, and contains valuable lessons for troupes - mostly in the form of case studies and stories of successes and failures.

Much of the book, however, is concerned with the history of Commedia rather than it's practical application.

The sections on commedia-inspired contemporary artists link their work back to commedia very well. Also the glosary is invaluable.

Discussion of devising, ect is also very academic based: 'this is what the old troupes did' rather than 'to get started to this'.

Overall a good read, when in conjuction with other more practical sources.
