The Young Actor's Book of Improvisation: Dramatic Situations from Shakespeare to Spielberg (Vol 1) Reviews
This book was excellent. It really makes you think and go inside the character. It would be a perfect total of five stars if it had more improvisation ideas for one person. Other than that, it great. I really liked it, and if you take a drama class, I recommend you bring it with you for the whole class to share--but make sure nobody tries to [take] it!
