Actor for Life is the text that actors and acting teachers search for. It has an upbeat tone, easy to read style, and tongue-in-cheek images, so the profoundly powerful content is surprisingly easy to take in and use. The exercises draw on the latest methods from the science of learning. They enable the reader to break negative patterns of thought and behavior, and literally reprogram their brains. The result is lasting positive change.
