This is a book for the thinking actor, and the finest actors I've known are just that. The best actors bring it all together: body, heart, spirit, and mind. This book is for the actor who thinks about craft and influence, who thinks about the relationship of performance to living, who thinks about doing and what that doing means. Acting is a metaphor, and it's a mirror. A theory of acting, if true, shows us to ourselves. Jeff Zinn knows this. He knows it as an actor, director, teacher, and thinker. His theory of everything is simple and revelatory.

A wonderful and insightful book
The book is a deep dive into the existential questions: where do we come from, what do we do here and where do we go in the end. Working out how each of us creates his or her causa sui project, our private heroic narrative Zinn leads us to understand actions and transactions. Valuable for actors and everyone else.
