4.0 out of 5 stars A humorous read full of good information, 29 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Rules of Acting (Kindle Edition)
Being one of those people who can never remember names; who is who; or who played what, I never expected to enjoy this book as much as I did and rate it a good 4 stars. I enjoy all things theatrical and read it because the title took my fancy, but also because of a friend who is involved in local theatre stage management, secretly would love to be on stage, and want to understand this desire.

Not only is Michael Simpkins talented as an actor, he is also a talented writer. This is a book full of real information about the world of acting. All the questions a budding young thespian could have are answered in a humorous and accurate way. Each step from which drama school, the do’s and don’ts of auditions, theatrical etiquette, the highs and lows, successes and failures and reaching Hollywood, is covered in a logical progression by Simpkins. I think The Rules of Acting is a real guidance about the industry covering small details that can only be given from the inside. As Simpkins shares the details directly with the reader, I found it a humorous book making me laugh out loud.

If you seriously have a desire to join the industry then you must read this book. It is honest, and encouraging to those wishing to do so.
