Actors must take meetings to advance their careers. Seeking representation, management, auditions, or work in specific projects, they meet with agents, managers, producers, and casting directors. However, these important meetings are often unsuccessful because the actors present themselves inadequately. Lacking self-awareness and authenticity, actors frequently conduct themselves as victims or manipulators, which leads to their being seen as undesirable working partners, regardless of their acting abilities and credits. The Actor Takes A Meeting is the first book to address the actor?s self-presentation at an interview or meeting. It shows the actor how to be the host of a meeting and the initiator of an exciting experience that may lead to offers of representation, auditions, and project participation. In The Actor Takes a Meeting, actors will learn startling, myth-busting truths: They'll learn that they will "blow it" if interviewers look at their resumes during meetings or if they answer questions with prepared riffs about themselves or if they are on their best behavior! Most importantly, they will learn how applying Stephen Book's practical teachings can bring about remarkable transformations of their meeting skills.
