"From the moment it was first suggested that I might play Richard III for the RSC, an obsession started to grow like being in love, there is this other person filling your waking thoughts and some of your dreams. So this book follows events in a year in the life of us two, Richard III and myself, from the first suggestion to the opening night" ~ Antony Sher

"A most wonderfully authentic account of the experience of creating a performance ... and full of Sher's astonishing and unforgettable drawings" ~ Simon Callow

"One of the finest books I have ever read on the process of acting" ~ Time Out
