I thought this book gave a very interesting insight into the longtime working relationship and collaborations in the theatre between Sam Mendes and Simon Russell Beale. I enjoyed all the anecdotes a great deal, though the author's style of writing wasn't quite so appealing. Some of the productions I saw, though sadly not all, but this book has definitely whet my appetite for their much-anticipated King Lear.
