Review quote

'Acting and How to Survive' it is exactly what actors need as they try to make their way in Show Business. I am going to recommend that all actors, anywhere, read it. Peter is a very fine actor and teacher, and over 20 years teaching acting he's developed his own approach to things. It comes from somebody who is a very experienced practitioner, who is also also a terrific writer. Jam packed with all sorts of good advice - stories, anecdotes, tips - it's got everything. After you've read it you've got no excuses in understanding what a demanding and challenging business it is to work in, but you will also come out feeling inspired and full of enthusiasm for the craft of acting. The way Peter attacks things is incredibly useful ...there's an enormous amount of common sense and useful suggestions in the book. I think it's one of the most important books written about acting, anywhere."

Review by Peter Hambleton, Actor, on Radio NZ National, Nine to Noon

'Acting and How to Survive It is a generous and impressive read, well-written, entertaining and packed with invaluable information.'
