Some of the greatest actors speak out Mar 22, 2007
Reviewed by William E. Cooper for Reader Views (2/07)
Do you often reflect about some the greatest actors of theatre and film, and what they brought in terms of real entertainment? Do you remember the pride they took in their work, and that you could easily watch and listen to them, and have the family do the same? Were you part of an audience, someone who wished he or she could remember some of those really good lines or quotes? Well, now you have a source for them. Now you have a book that brings these wonderful actors into your home, business, or library.
This is a book designed to read straight through, or in any part any time. The book content is arranged alphabetically and provides literally hundreds of great quotes from a myriad of actors, both current and historic. I found myself reading the book through, almost without stopping. There are so many great quotes, it is a fascinating read. The content has obviously been thoroughly researched, and considerable thought given to what should or should not go in to the book. What is there is a compilation of quotes about the business and people involved with it. The reader can not only enjoy the book for what it is, but can take so many of the statements and translate them into everyday life.
As the author of the book "Leading Beyond Tradition," I know what it takes to prepare and develop a book. The work involved is significant, but the outcomes are normally well worth the effort. This book was worth it. I am completing a book on some of the greatest leadership quotations of all time, so have a good appreciation for such works. Mr. Phillips intended to deliver a good book, and clearly has done so. "The Audience Book of Theatre Quotations" is well worth your time and resources and should be part of your library. I need to offer a sincere well done to Mr. Phillips.
