    Review quote
    "'Cuts open every generalisation about acting and draws out gleamingly fresh specifics' Peter Brook 'Explains Donnellan's highly practical system and sheds unique light on one of the greatest directors of acting in our time.' Le Monde 'Hugely practical and never gets lost in theory' El Pais 'A gripping read, as acute about the psychology of lying as it is about the art of acting.' Guardian 'Comes from the heart of his own experience: actors' blocks are dismembered lethally and with infectious relish' Alan Rickman 'Brilliantly direct: exhilarating to read and - more importantly - to put into practice' Joseph Fiennes"
