Where does Secrets of Screen Acting rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top of the list. Best yet.

What other book might you compare Secrets of Screen Acting to and why?

This book is the best of the books I've listened to because its chock full of detailed information that is seldom (if ever) available to the novice actor. Its a LOT of information but its narrated in such a way as to keep an audience interested.

Have you listened to any of David H. Lawrence XVII’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
