True and False Book Review:

One of our most brilliantly iconoclastic playwrights takes on the art of profession of acting with these words: invent nothing, deny nothing, speak up, stand up, stay out of school. Acting schools, “interpretation,” “sense memory,” “The Method”—David Mamet takes a jackhammer to the idols of contemporary acting, while revealing the true heroism and nobility of the craft. He shows actors how to undertake auditions and rehearsals, deal with agents and directors, engage audiences, and stay faithful to the script, while rejecting the temptations that seduce so many of their colleagues. Bracing in its clarity, exhilarating in its common sense, True and False is as shocking as it is practical, as witty as it is instructive, and as irreverent as it is inspiring.

The Method Acting Exercises Handbook Book Review:

The Method Acting Exercises Handbook is a concise and practical guide to the acting exercises originally devised by Lee Strasberg, one of the Method's foremost practitioners. The Method trains the imagination, concentration, senses and emotions to ‘re-create’ – not ‘imitate’ – logical, believable and truthful behavior on stage and in film. Building on nearly 30 years of teaching internationally and at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York and Los Angeles, Lola Cohen details a series of specific exercises in order to provide clear instruction and guidance to this preeminent form of actor training. By integrating Strasberg's voice with her own tried and tested style of teaching, Cohen demonstrates what can be gained from the exercises, how they can inform and inspire your learning, and how they might be applied to your acting and directing practice. As a companion to The Lee Strasberg Notes (Routledge 2010), a transcription of Strasberg's own teaching, The Method Acting Exercises Handbook offers an unparalleled and updated guide to this world renowned technique.

Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai Book Review:

A Collection of Thoughts, Sayings and Meditations on the Way of the Samurai "It is said that what is called "the spirit of an age" is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation." — Tsunetomo Yamamoto, Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai A formerly secret text known only to the Samurai, Hagakure is a classic text on Bushido--the Way of the Warrior. More than just a handbook for battle, Hagakure is a text that filled with teachings that still apply in business, political and social situations today. This Xist Classics edition has been professionally formatted for e-readers with a linked table of contents. This eBook also contains a bonus book club leadership guide and discussion questions.

"Screen Acting Skills offers up advice and practical screen acting exercises aimed at students seeking clear, practical exercises to aid them in their study. The book addresses the fact that many screen actors beginning their careers lack the necessary pre-shoot preparation and knowledge of studio protocols that are required of them, and aims to augment existing theoretical and academic studies by offering practical, focussed exercises that can be explored in low-tech workshop situations. Written in an informal, accessible, jargon-free and often humorous style, Screen Acting Skills enables creativity on the studio or workshop floor, allowing young actors to access their own talent, and to discover and hone their skills in preparation for future training and a career. Through the exercises and the overall approach, the reader is offered a fresh, low-tech and yet highly relevant professional approach to early screen acting training and studio work. The book is published alongside online videos of workshops with screen acting students"--

Singing Professionally Book Review:

This technical handbook on studying singing provides what few others do: both a scientific basis and practical guide. In it, Arabella Hong-Young, who has been a singer for 60 years and a teacher for 40 years, explains the vocal apparatus and process in simple, comprehensible terms. She also offers extensive exercises to guide students through detailed steps in learning to sing. The vocal techniques she presents are geared to solve specific challenges throughout the range from the simplest approaches for the beginner-proper posture, breath control, voice placement-to the more advanced study for professional students, including: the adaptation of a classical technique for improving vocal quality and control in musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz singing "Zen in the Art of Studying Singing" for focusing the mind to get the most out of one's studies "How to Audition" for the complete process from the audition package, attitude, preparation, and presentation to controlling fear. For this revised edition, Hong-Young offers a new featured chapter, "Conquer the Hole in the Voice," in which she supplies unusual insight into handling the upper and lower passaggio changes in voice. Passing from one register into another requires adjustment in vocal placement and Hong-Young explains exactly how this is achieved. Her detailed and numerous exercises help singers solve this universal problem. Anyone serious about singing, whether amateur or professional, will benefit from the wealth of instruction in this book. It is also ideal as a supplement and reference guide for students, teachers, and classes.
