About the Author:

Joseph Hacker is an associate professor of theatre practice at the University of Southern California. He is also an actor and producer with over 30 years' experience, having appeared in such seminal TV series' as 24, Quantum Leap and the Twilight Zone.

Review:

Mr Hacker offers an invaluable set of skills for navigating the world of film auditioning. Every audition of my career, and indeed many times on the job, I have utilized his strategies. They are an excellent way to jump ahead of the pack and start with skills it takes others years to discover through trial and error.

- Deborah Ann Woll, Jessica Hamby on HBO's True Blood and a former student

Hacker's book is destined to replace Michael Shurtliff's 'Audition' as the auditioning guide for the 21st century. I use his methods every time I walk into the audition room and they never fail to leave a great impression.

- Robert Baker, Dr Charles Percy on CBS's Grey's Anatomy and a former student
