True and False: Heresy and Common Sense for the Actor
True and False: Heresy and Common Sense for the Actor
by David Mamet
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

2.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but glib, distorted and superficial, 15 Oct. 2014
Fascinating, provocative, a good read and excellent on critique of the 'business' - but also creates a totally distorted and inaccurate view of what he calls the Stanislavski method, when what he is apparently attacking is the Srasberg Method in its worst manifestations: very ironic when Mamet praises the use of objectives and actions, which were a central technique of Stanislavski's. Confused and confusing, and his concept of ditching 'situation,' and almost arbitrary selection of actions is glib and superficial and unless taken with a huge ironic pinch of salt, dangerous for the actor.

How to Do Accents: The Essential Handbook for Every Actor

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous essential book for actors and all voice practitioners, 4 Dec. 2007
If you're looking for a book on accents this has to be the first one to buy. It's clear, informative, systematic and gives you the guidelines and principles for doing ANY accent. It's also playful and very accessible and backs up the text with a cd. A bonus: the book is beautifully designed and illustrated, of high quality paper, and a pleasure to handle. Every actor, acting student and voice teacher should own this, read it, and refer to it as an essential reference book when working on roles.
