The Actor’s Handbook is a must have, an essential tool for any serious actor looking to excel in their craft and anyone who aspires to and dreams of becoming a successful actor. I highly recommend this book! Andrew Heller’s 54 years in the industry have afforded him a wealth of knowledge, all of which he openly shares in this book. Tricks of the trade, techniques for developing your art, a detailed look at the business aspect of acting, industry secrets – insights that only come after years of trial and error, then success – Heller details in his book. Acting is more than an art, it’s a business and short cuts will not let you succeed and beat the competition. You must be prepared and ready at all times. This book is broken down into 6 easy to follow acts and skills you will need every day as a working actor. From knowing your craft to landing that job – if you want to succeed in any business you must learn from those who have themselves achieved success, not acting coaches who have never made it in the business of acting. Andrew Heller has succeeded in the business of acting. Whether seasoned veterans or starry-eyed hopefuls, everyone will benefit from this book. And to those who are already working actors this book will keep there skills sharp and ready to attack any role. The Actor’s Handbook will teach you how to take creative responsibility, be original, and pay attention to your surroundings. Instruction on how to properly format your resume and head shots, how to promote yourself as an actor and get an agent are explained thoroughly step by step. Knowing camera angles, studying your lines, refining your cold reading skills for auditions as well as the industry’s Do’s & Don’ts are detailed. You can’t find this kind of insight anywhere else! In all my years of acting this book is one of the most valuable tools I’ve ever encountered and I myself use it every day as a reference and guide.
