Reading Recommendations

Here are some books on acting technique that I find extremely useful:

  1. Acting In Film: An Actor's Take on Movie Making - Michael Caine
  2. A Practical Handbook For The Actor - M. Bruder, (L.M. Cohn, M. Olnek, N. Pollack, R. Previto & S. Zigler)
  3. Sanford Meisner on Acting - Sanford Meisner and Dennis Longwell
  4. True and False: Heresay and Common Sense for the Actor - David Mamet

These books are not listed in order of preference. Many are based on the Meisner Technique so you may not have the full picture if you are not familiar with the practice. All can be found at Amazon, click the link on the right for further information.
