Its a really chintzy little paperback, obviously photocopied from another. 64 pages, stapled in the center so it never lies flat.
For $8.95 + exhorbitant shipping costs and delays (2 weeks by USPS) you get a biography of Checkhov and acting exercises. Turns out this is just the workbook that goes with the DVD set. I suppose its fine if you are in a class based on the Checkhov style. Some good nuggets of technique here by an esteemed actor and coach but a ho-hum read, not user-friendly (fat type and no space for notes) and a really ugly book. On the up-side, its small, so you can stick it in your bag and read it on the subway or while in line at the car wash. Its designed to be read in snippets. only, otherwise you'll go cross-eyed.
