What is acting?

How do you do it?

Why do you do it?

What gives you the nerve?

What messes you up?

When is it most joyful to you?

Can anybody do it?

What is the most important thing an actor should know?

This is an insightful and entertaining book of quotations from our finest actors, directors, screenwriters, producers, coaches, and critics on the art, the craft, the nerve, and the thrill of acting, what it takes to "make it" as an actor

And the joy of what it means to be an actor when you are doing it right!

Packed with pithy insights and guideposts from award-winning actors and directors such as Harrison Ford, Elizabeth Taylor, Martin Scorsese, Jane Alexander, Tom Hanks, Marlon Brando, Stella Adler, Steven Spielberg, Jessica Tandy, Brad Pitt, David Mamet, Oprah Winfrey, Lee Strasberg, Julia Roberts, and Val Kilmer, this elegant little book is "acting in a nutshell, from those who really know!"

Funny, revealing - even shocking - The Actor's Quotation Book also includes short essays preceding each segment, photos, poster art, news clippings, and other graphics

A must for the actor, the aspiring actor, students in the arts, anyone who works with actors, film, and theatergoers, and those interested in the skills of presentation

Also makes a great gift book!
