Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This complete resource for actors wanting to get online includes information about the web, newsgroups, and creating web pages and also serves as a guide to Internet sites. It is not necessarily a good book for Internet novices; Kozlowski uses a great deal of jargon, which could leave them overwhelmed even though an extensive glossary of terms is included. But for readers who manage to get through the introductory pages, this book offers something other resources do not always have--detailed annotations of a plethora of web sites for actors, ranging from educational opportunities to casting calls. Kozlowski, an improvisational actor/director and regular contributor to Perform Ink (a newspaper for Chicago performers), discusses each site specifically in terms of actors' needs. This book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing Netscape Communicator 4.5 along with shareware evaluation editions of other programs--useless to libraries, unfortuantely, as there is a user time limit of 30 days. Recommended for public and academic theater reference collections.--Laura A. Ewald, Murray State Univ. Lib., KY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
