This books touches on alot of different topics and is a very good starting book for the beginning actor.
Backstage West- for all the audtion listings
"Voice Lessons To Go" by Vaccarino, hey you know we all need to sing as some audition at one time or another-these are great.
"The Artist Way" by, Cameron- it has helped me and so many of my friends gain confidence and clarity- love this.

It covers almost everything--film, theatre, commercials, kids in acting, directors, auditions, etc. It is a great book for people who are starting out, wanting some direction, or are just plain curious about the business. I find this book a helpful one that I look back on once in a while.
This book does *not* teach you how to act. That is not the intent. Rather it teaches you about the business of acting - covering film, theatre, extra work, and even things like money and life management as an actor.
I can't say enough good things about it! Thanks for the great read and the sun tan!
anyway this book is about the business and it is very simple and informative in that regard, so if you're seeking that info you should buy this book, do not expect to find advice concerning technique though, good luck
