Dear Larry, I find your books to be fascinating, compelling, and so accessible to anyone unfamiliar with the Meisner Approach to acting. What strikes me the most about it though, is the love which is woven into your attitude toward the acting student and his work. I will definitely be using your texts as my primary source for my acting classes here at Texas Tech.
