    Applies to musicians, dancers and other performance artists

    Excellent book for performers. I also liked his other two books ("Audition Success" & "Fight Your Fear and Win" There is some overlap between the three books but if you're looking for an edge in your performances, these are worthy additions to your library (and less than the cost of a decent private lesson.)
