Reviews of the previous edition:

'It is a very good piece of work altogether and there's nothing else that contains a tenth as much as useful advice for the novice director'.

'A rollercoasting blockbuster of a book that claims to supply the novice
director with the information and skills that usually only come with years of
experience ...'
