"Practical, readable and instructive, this book holds the reader's attention. Even for the person who is not particularly interested in the topic, the author's clear and concise writing style readily offers interesting information.
One strong asset of this informational book is that it gave enough detail to the reader to move forward in the goal towards acting, but not so much as to bog the reader down with unnecessary detail.
Mr. Harris does meet the goals of his book that were promised in the introduction. Those goals included exploring creative ways of producing viable, artistic and theatrical experiences, exploring multi media opportunities, and to help artists and actors look for opportunities right where they live.
The sentence structures were designed for a "quick" read and that is what the reader experiences. The book cover does draw the reader to the the book and the format and structure of the chapters are well done. For a person interested in this topic, this book is a helpful resource."
