This well-written, insightful book will be of interest not only to actors and directors, but anyone who wants to spend some time with the Bard. If I were teaching an English Lit course I would include this along with the plays. If you like Shakespeare and you enjoy thinking, you will love this book!

This is a fantastic book for anyone who will be acting in or directing a Shakespeare play. So helpful in helping you understand who characters are and why they use the words they use and what they mean by them. Great explanation of iambic pentameter included.

I enjoyed reading "Thinking Shakespeare: A How-to Guide for Student Actors, Directors, and ..." as it provided me with valuable insight on teaching and understanding the language of Shakespeare. I have been teaching and directing Shakespearean productions for the last four years with a passion for understanding the language. With the new year fast approaching and having read Edelstein's book, I feel more confident and excited to present my new found knowledge on the subject this semester to my middle school students. The more I read, the more I realized that there was a world of knowledge I had yet to discover.
