      A great book for writers also. Need a prompt, pick an exercise.

      It has lots of exercises, but most of them are the classics. The most useful chapter is the last one where the exercises are categorized according to the "difficulties an actor has" that they help to solve.

      ditched the book, took the class from the author. the class was 5*, but the book by itself would be tough going.
