    I wish Uta Hagen was still alive I want to go to her house and watch her sit in her favorite seat and smoke ciggarettes with her and ask her a million questions about how the hell she can be the most self aware actor ever without also being the most self concious actor ever This book is a bit helpful than her previous acting book, but it still begs many questions I would be her most annoying student contstantly poking my hand up into the air, But Mistress Uta Hm I wonder what students DID call [...]

    I think what Uta Hagen had to say here could have been said in an essay rather than a 300 page book And from what other actors have told me, Hagen already said much of this in Respect for Acting anyway, but better Regardless, I do not think I will be reading Hagen s other work, because I m pretty sure I already understand her gist.I m sure Hagen is a great actress, and a great person The respect she has for the theatre is admirable, and I appreciate that she tries to get actors to push themselve [...]

    Even though I haven t been acting for years sometimes I ll do some of these exercises when I m bored and I m waiting for someone They re all about going inside yourself and observing your behavior and then naturally replicating in in front of an audience.

    Uta Hagen clarified and revised the ideas presented in Respect for Acting If you had to choose between them, get this book She teaches people to act by using their own life experiences This book contains plenty of acting exercises that can be done alone.

    Uta Hagen is a genius Every actor should be required to read this text.

    It s very genuine book No bullshit And a must read All acting teachings in this book are very useful.

    This book could be condensed down to a couple points that are easy to explain It s about two hundred pages too long Also it s very dense and poorly written.

    I liked it, but I expected I ve heard her previous book Respect for Acting, which was the predecessor to this book contained much of the same information but laid it out simply I read through this book without doing the exercises and so perhaps would find it fruitful if I were to do the exercises Some of it seemed a bit heady to me I will definitely read Respect for Acting in the near future in the hopes that some of the concepts Hagen lays out are clearly explained.

    Little in this book that I hadn t learned elsewhere and while it s possible that the other authors were only recycling her main points, I think they did it better, without overly dramatic language and periodic complaints about the present state of acting Guh.I agree, it should have just been an essay.

    It does clarify some of her concepts in her previous book, but it s rather repetitive and wordy The ideas are remarkably intuitive, but it s tough to unearth them from beneath all the rambling sentences.

    Jacob Anderson
    I ended up skimming a lot towards the end because the advice gets very repetitive the book could be much concise , but Uta provides lots of examples from experience and well known plays to feast on upon future revisits.

    Excellent Very inspiring with plenty of excersises Though it has a different title it is basically a revision update of the book Respect for Acting.

    Mark Woodland
    Follow up to Respect for Acting, and lives up well to its title Again, not a technique, style, or training guide, but a way to view the art.

    Antonia Marrero
    Just Wonderful Very informative, helpful and smart I will certainly be able to apply my new found knowledge to my own work.

    A rehash of Respect for Acting I prefer the earlier book, but both are helpful.

    Tracy Morton
    Great exercise for actors of every level
