    (WOW I FINISHED IT, GUYS.) This book is a treasure. I shall keep it always and in 20 years it will probably be covered in pencil marks and notes and creases and tears from being carried around and carted and referred to. It's not really designed to be read straight through, but I wanted to anyway, so I could be overwhelmed by the thoughts and see the themes and have a memory to go back to when I need something from this book again. I reallllyyyy want Tips for Directors. (WOW I FINISHED IT, GUYS.) This book is a treasure.

    A great A-to-Z list of DOs and DON'Ts for actors and performers. Once, when I discovered a co-star was spreading rumors about me, I ripped out the listing "G - Gossip" and sent it to him anonymously care of the theatre. He never said another word about me! Its a great book to flip thru when you're needing some inspiration! A great A-to-Z list of DOs and DON'Ts for actors and performers.

    I mostly skimmed this book because I was looking for tips that would help improve my YouTube channel, and the book is meant for stage actors. The advice in it seemed like it would be very helpful for anyone looking into theater acting! I found a few tips I could use too.

    I hesitate to put a "start" and "finish" date to this book because I know it'll be in my back pocket backstage from now on. It has been on my "want to read" list for a long time now, so I guess studying acting and having it on my required reading list this past semester means I'm doing something right with my degree! I love the conciseness of this text (clearly not my own strong suit). I can pretty much open it wherever and find something I have needed to hear or be reminded of in my work.

    Great book for any actor or director! Each "tip" is a single page, so I like to carry this with me pretty much everywhere, and just open to a random page to get a quick idea or inspiration for my next rehearsal or performance. I recommend it highly. Great book for any actor or director!

    This is a really practical and helpful book. After reading it, I am making it a required book for my acting students. Lots of great advice and you can truly open up to any page and learn something of the craft of acting.
