On Method Acting demystifies the "mysteries" of Method acting -- breaking down the various steps into clear and simple terms, including chapters on:
Sense Memory -- the most vital component of Method acting
Improvisation -- without it, the most integral part of the Method is lost
Animal Exercises -- just one way to combat the mental blocks that prevent actors from grasping a character
Creating The Outer Character -- so actors can give the freshness of originality to a role while at the same time living the life of the character
On Method Acting is also an indispensable volume for directors, designers, lighting technicians, and anyone in the dramatic arts interested in creating a believable and realistic effect in their productions.
Practiced by Marlon Brando, Dustin Hoffman, and the late James Dean, the Method is one of the least understood acting techniques. This volume offers a practical application of the famed Stanislavsky teachings with chapters on sense memory, improvisation, and creating character. Previously published by House of Collectibles.

I was watching a interview with Johnny Depp on TV, and Johnny said that he bought this book and uses it's method's still today. So I went out and got the book, and altough I havn't read it yet, I'm sure it will be good.
