Absolutely love this book. An incredible exploration for an actor (or singer) interested in exploring Archetypes. Best when you are using this in a class room setting or with a group of fellow performers- but an informative read alone. Mostly a guide line for how a workshop or class room style exploration of archetypes should go. Bought my own set of archetype cards I was so inspired after this book haha.

This book was written for an audience of actors, but as someone who is not an actor, but nonetheless does work with archetypes I found it to be a valuable read, with useful exercises that can be applied to more than just acting. I like that the authors drew on perspectives of movement such as Laban's work, but also that they made their work very accessible. This is a book I'd recommend to a counselor, actor, artist, or the magician who wants to take a different approach to his/her magical workings.
