From the Inside Flap
Practiced by such actors of stature as Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Julie Harris, Dustin Hoffman, and Ellen Burstyn (not to mention the late James Dean) the Method offers a practical application of the renowned Stanislavsky technique.
On Method Acting demystifies the "mysteries" of Method acting -- breaking down the various steps into clear and simple terms, including chapters on:
Sense Memory -- the most vital component of Method acting
Improvisation -- without it, the most integral part of the Method is lost
Animal Exercises -- just one way to combat the mental blocks that prevent actors from grasping a character
Creating The Outer Character -- so actors can give the freshness of originality to a role while at the same time living the life of the character
On Method Acting is also an indispensable volume for directors, designers, lighting technicians, and anyone in the dramatic arts interested in creating a believable and realistic effect in their productions.

Method acting turns out to be a mental training program for actors in the very same way, making use of the very same tools, that athletes nowadays use for their mental training. It includes basic notes on meditation, visualization, different boundaries in terms of your reference frame.
As an accompanying book, you might actually want to get a mental training program like "The Gold Medal Mental Workout" by Dariusz Nowicky. This book will show you how to use it to your advantage in terms of acting.
A very good book for a very nice price.
