Okay, so it's been out before, okay, so I am biased and he's a bloody good mate, but lovely Nigel has really done a damn fine job of updating the whole shebang. I know lovely Chrissy Douglas had a hand in it, behind the scene's as t'wer, but you can feel Nigel's influence on every page. At last, someone who's prepared to be honest about how much bloody hard work we actors do darling.
I laughed until I puked, and then suddenly, a cruel mirror was turned at me and I shuddered, was I really an actor after all?
Brilliant, should be read by everyone who's ever been near a theatre, an actor or even, frankly, if you've just watched a bit of telly.
This is what it's really like.

Being a bit of an am-dram myself, i bought this book to give me a few tips and pointers. It certainly gave me plenty. And reassurance too! I have been labouring under the misapprehension that I spit on my fellow actors; Mr Craig has put me right, and my 'actoplasm' can now flow with abandon.
A seriously entertaining read for all those who enjoy actors, acting and seeing pomposity pricked.
Excellent!
