Top Customer Reviews
There's many excellent tips on getting THAT role and how to rehearse and work at the casting. The tips on marketing oneself as an actor are highly relevant and although at times they are common sense, how many times does common sense go out of the window?
It is a book that should be an essential purchase for any would-be actor/actress out there and could become a standard work. There are excellent anecdotes in there too and you'll refer to this highly readable book again and again.
A little more proof reading could have been useful, but that's one for the publisher, not the author to address in their next edition.
There will surely be many for a book that could make a great difference to your career.
