Great actor, writer, director and good friend of mine, Andy Nyman has written this excellent book that I recommend to students and pro alike.  Check out Andy’s own website and please follow this link to purchase a copy.  Follow him on Twitter @andynyman

About the book:

A treasure trove of advice, support and encouragement that no performer should be without. Honest, witty and direct, The Golden Rules of Acting is every actor’s best friend – in handy paperback form.

‘When auditioning, rehearsing or in a performance, take a risk – the worst that can happen is that you get embarrassed. You won’t die.’

Easy to dip into, fully illustrated throughout, and designed to be both instructive and empowering, The Golden Rules of Acting won’t tell you how to act – but it will tell you how to be an actor.

‘Always remember, the people auditioning you want you to be brilliant.They want you to solve their casting problem.’

If you’re a working actor, drama-school student, someone who wants to become an actor, or simply someone who has a dream and wants to make it a reality, this book is for you.
