(Update: only read the last chapter because it is actually filled with useful information and is actually quite inspiring unlike the rest of the book.)
It is a poor excuse for a book written like a motivational seminar speech. The sentences are often broken, which makes it *really* difficult to read coherently. The content is a collection of poorly pieced together anecdotes that don't really make a lot of sense.
Do not make the mistake I made. If you are tempted to buy this book - order a preview (I think the Kindle allows you to do so) and read that before pressing the buy button.
I found it very dry and difficult reading through these life changing events that the writer had experienced.
I purchased it, because of all of the reviews claiming how great this book is. This could not be more wrong.
The only thing I like about this book is the art on the cover. haha. Save your money.
The book is divided into 15 weeks where each week there is an exercise to help fuel your creativity. Meindl keeps his subjects very simple to understand. You do not have to be an experienced thespian to understand this book. This book applies to anyone and everyone no matter what level you are as an actor. On every page, he provokes you and your mind to figure out why we are so hard on ourselves and shut off our creativity.
You do not have to be an actor read this book. If you have any creative bug that is itching, then this book is for you. Meindl's book is not like any other acting book you'll find. This book is really an extension of his philosophy and how he approaches his work. If you are still skeptical, you can find his lessons on YouTube and you can get a sense of what it's like. He is an inspiring and motivating person, and this book is just that.
