The first thing you need to know about this book is that it's not a guide on how to act on stage alone (or solo, as the title suggests, and as I thought upon buying the book). It is actually a collection of stories of people who put on all sorts of solo performances. Being involved in a solo show myself, these stories were informative and somewhat educational and being an actor in general, they were highly entertaining. I'd recommend it, although I think they should have named it differently.
