    A reviewer

    This is a great study guide for acting students. I use it for every job I get. It's perfect for that moment when a director askes what you are doing and you know but you can't find the perfect word. This book gives you that word and that image to make everything clearer.

    Great Pocket Guide

    This book is great when you are trying to find the right feeling and/or emotion to play and are not sure how to translate you thoughts to actions. I recommend this as a quick reference for pros to novices. Worth every penny.
