Collecting advice, quotes, essays, and observations from hundreds of famous actors and highly regarded acting teachers,The Quotable Actor covers a wide range of topics on the art and history of acting.

Entertaining, instructive, and informative, it is organized into specific, easy-to-search categories, such as "On Why We Act"; "On Auditioning"; "On Struggling and Building a Career"; and "On Gender Differences and Aging in the Biz."

From art and technique to business and lifestyle, entries include fascinating anecdotes and advice from some of the greatest actors in history:

Meryl Streep’s advice on building a character
Al Pacino recalling what it was like to be a starving young artist
