I love this book. It will help you prepare for the real world and It's good for helping with the memory. From using this book I have learned how to take a character and make it real or make it come to life. I also learned how to make the acting real and how to not over act. I so recommend this book for actors because it isn't a book that is a fake, it's a very real book that truly will help those who are interested in acting. There are other book like this one that I would look in to as well but this one for sure is the best. SO GET IT!!!!
