There isnobook of which I am aware that gives such first-rate, clear-cut, no-nonsense advice."--Bob Fosse "What a book! What an achievement! The only book ever written that makes the reader understand the theatre."--Joshua Logan "Immensely useful . . . a distillation of broad how-to-do-it wisdom."--Variety "The subject matter is surprisingly universal (everybody has to audition for something sometime) and the inside tales are terrific . . . What Stanislavsky was to acting, Michael Shurtleff is to auditioning."--New York Post "Extraordinary. No actor will want to be without it."--Estelle Parsons "An education--in theatre savvy, in self-knowledge."--Publishers Weekly
