I received it on Thu, Apr 26, 2018. It was shipped from Nashville, TN and I live in Illinois, so there wasn't that far of a distance it had to travel. When you get it ultimately depends on the distance between where you live and where it is being shipped from.(less)

Thank you first of all to NetGalley and Howard Tilley for letting me peruse this wonderful new addition to my acting technique books. I am always in the market for good, really good, books on acting techniques. This is perfect for my theatre students. They will revel in the direction this book takes them in. It's short in length but to the point! I love the first important sentence, and I am quoting..".. Where is it written to be a gifted actor, you must be filled with rage or pain or strife." I ...more

If I had my life to do over again I would fully devote myself to being an actor because after reading this book I finally believe that I could do it, do it well and stay well while I was doing it. She walks you through every aspect of building a character - from the underlying foundation that the whole process rests on to the very top floor with the amazing view. I felt like she was holding my hand and whispering the perfect words of encouragement every step of the way. This is a book for every ...more

Her book is straight forward, very accessible and, most likely to the relief of many actors, debunks the notion that good technique requires mining one’s own most painful and profound personal experiences through the antiquated theater training made popular by Konstantin Stanislavski. Ms. Loughlin generously provides a step-by-step method of how an actor can create the character’s feelings on camera through thoughtful research of exactly what the script says (not inferences) and bringing an obje ...more

Warner Loughlin's acting technique is immensely popular for not only helping actors successfully convey deep and meaningful emotions on screen, but for keeping their hearts and minds safe while doing so. Unlike the Method acting technique, which has so infamously hurt many actors, The WLT supports a healthy lifestyle as well as complex performances! This book outlines (from Warner herself) this incredible technique, along with information from some of the A-list stars that practice it (Ryan Reyn ...more

If you're an aspiring actor, this is a terrific guide to getting where you need to be for portraying your character without losing you mind in the process! Heck, if it works for Amy Adams, Ryan Adams, Kyra Sedgwick and lots of other Oscar-worthy movie stars, then how could you resist?! I couldn't! The writing is accessible and oozes with personality. Clearly working with this author's team would be a warm and wonderful experience! It's also a good book to read to just become a more balanced pers ...more

What a wonderful new way of acting without causing emotional trauma. Definitely a great read for anyone in acting - or even anyone who does a lot of public speaking and would love to know how to channel another character for those events.

I received a copy of this book through Goodreads Giveaways. I'm not currently pursuing a career in acting, but grew up acting and majored in theatre in college, so I was excited to read this book. I enjoyed how Loughlin walks the reader through her technique step by step, and breaks down the content to be achievable. I especially liked the overview of child and human developmental stages. Overall I think this book is a good tool for any actor looking to build skills in creating strong character ...more

I’m so glad I found Warner’s book through the ‘That One Audition’ podcast! This is the first acting technique that actually makes sense to me! Warner gives you all the tools you need to safely create a fully formed character, giving them a rich emotional depth all on their own without having to draw from your own experiences. This is a must read for anyone who is considering acting or looking to take their technique in a different direction.

This book has some seriously great insights! It isn't JUST acting techniques, but offers you a complete balance for a healthy overall lifestyle. There is some fantastic information in this book from some of the top stars in the biz, but written in an easy to follow, professional way! I would recommend this to anyone pursing an acting career.
I won this book in the goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

I wanted to get this book as a gift for a young inexperience actress that is in the early stages of learning the craft. All I can say is that she was completely engrossed and never looked up until she was finished. It certainly had her attention from the first page.

Warner's stacked list of students should be enough to make any actor of any experience level pick up this book, but her approach to the art will force a perspective shift that will take your acting to the next level.

An absolute must read before taking on a character.

Extraordinary. This book presents a new approach to working on a character. One that doesn’t take a massive emotional toll on your personal life but requires you to do some good nitty gritty work. I can’t wait to apply what I’ve learned in this book.

Loved this insider's look at the craft of acting. It is a good exercise in the exercise of stepping outside of yourself to become more fully yourself. I would recommend for any and all.
