Departing from the common guidebook format, Michael Howard uses a unique approach to teaching acting, reflecting on his own history and sharing his own experiences as an actor, director, and teacher. How he writes about the process and craft of acting is at once The Actor Uncovered is certainly not a set of rigid rules advocating one "method" or one singular "truth." Departing from the common guidebook format, Michael Howard uses a unique approach to teaching acting, reflecting on his own history and sharing his own experiences as an actor, director, and teacher.

    A look into acting that I hadn't considered before, but did allow me to see the craft in a different light. Not necessarily sure yet if this is these are the techniques for me or the craft for me, but this could be an interesting insight into acting at times. I think at times, the book was a bit heavy on references that potentially a non actor may not be familiar with so that bogged certain elements down for me, but I think if I do decide to join the theater world again I would be willing to A look into acting that I hadn't considered before, but did allow me to see the craft in a different light.

    I'm biased because I study at his studio, but michael Howard's book is wonderful. It's not a how- to book or a book that teaches you the tricks of acting. Rather it's Michael Howard's account of how to approach the craft as an art. I found myself underlining and highlighting and taking notes in the margins, and after many years of being in the theatre, I found that much of what he said rang true for me.

    This is a Goodreads win review. I have never read a book about the art of acting before. The author of this book has been an actor, a director and a teacher of acting. It talks about every aspect of acting; techniques, styles, methods, concentration, memory, etc. It is a very interesting book.
