Recommends it for: those studying Linklater technique
I've found Linklater to be a helpful, insightful, and accessible method for studying and performing Shakespeare. I wouldn't try reading the book without studying the technique practically in a workshop or class, but as an accompaniment to practical study it's top-notch. Linklater's passion for her subject is clear and inspiring.
