It's consistently amongst the bestselling books on Amazon in the "acting and auditioning" category, and has sold all over the world. Tips on being present, being authentic, being funny and being healthy. There are print and digital versions on Amazon. You could also buy a much prettier digital version from my personal online bookstore.
