Editorial Reviews

Review

"Very thorough, knowledge from experience and entertainingly so. Reader friendly writing style. No pontificating, clear, detailed.An encouraging book. It does not make the process seem intimidating...Humorous, extremely reader friendly. The writing invites us in rather than talks 'at' us. It feels as if one is sitting around a table chatting with the author." ~Stageplays.com Forum Member

"If ever there was a poster boy for 'write what you know', it's Biss, because what he knows really does entertain us." ~Views from the Gods, London

"Biss' writing is warm and funny" ~Time Out

"Biss has spent a great deal of time either treading the boards or lurking in the wings, and it makes his writing so engaging." ~Views from the Gods, London
