Very cool volume by the Great Director Robert Lewis where he teaches the "vital elements of the actor's craft" and the "entire craft of acting". In each chapter he discusses an element of acting technique and the exercises to perfect it. Covers relaxation to stage energy, improvisation to script study and analysis, auditioning, psychological gesture and even how to take criticism. The writing style is entertainingly written as if he is speaking directly and informally to the reader.
