Professional actor here--I first read this book a couple of years ago, having heard about Book and his classes through colleagues in Hollywood. I picked it up at a Barnes and Noble and read the whole thing in one sitting--I couldn't put it down. So much information that is relevant to not only your career and confidence, but the added benefit of transforming how you interact with people in social and personal settings. A great read on its own, but I highly recommend doing the interview exercises with a partner for maximum benefits. I have meetings with potential agents and managers coming up, and where there once was fear and insecurity, I now feel confident, prepared and dare I say--excited!

This book is refreshing and important. So much advice I’d heard before about having “successful” meetings centered around being on your best behavior, and presenting a controlled, targeted, planned impression designed to showcase yourself in the best light. This book convincingly reveals how that is exactly the wrong approach.

Book exposes how actors exhibit behavior rooted in a victim stance, and how they try to use tricks, compliments, and other manipulations to get what they want, creating terrible impressions along the way. The author provides a series of exercises with tools designed to clean these behaviors up so you can approach meetings with nothing planned and still create a memorable experience that organically and spontaneously gives your interviewer a heightened experience of who you are.

Applying these tools turns the meeting into an event, a party, a relief for the interviewer. The actor becomes the host of the meeting. Unlike job interviews in other professions, an actor need not be on their best behavior and must not approach the experience wanting anything. There is great nuance in these tools and discretion required in how to use them. This book is unusually lucid in providing a practical path to make these tools one’s own. Taking advice from this book has certainly freed up my meetings and turned them from something I feared into something I look forward to.

As I stated in my review of Stephen Book's other book (Stephen Book Improvisation Technique), I've been studying at the Stephen Book Acting Workshop for a little over two years under Larry Drake. We recently finished "The Interview Project" which incorporates the exercises included in this book.
So many actors shoot themselves in the foot in the "schmoozing" that takes place either before or after an audition. This book contains invaluable information about how to avoid that kind of behavior.
While this book is designed for actors, I have taken the principles and incorporated them into my everyday life as well. Even though I am an actor, I am an extremely introverted and quiet person. Conversing easily with strangers is not something that comes naturally to me. This book has a lot of great advice on how to deal with people, specifically in your professional life. However, I find the techniques can easily be applied (and certainly practiced) in one's personal life, as well.

The Actor Takes a Meeting provides you with the tools and techniques needed to have a successful "interview." When properly applied, you are able to create a shared experience with the "interviewer" that is both positive and memorable. Thus, leading to the agent, manager, producer, director, casting director, etc. to want to work with you- all before even getting a chance to look at your resume!
Stephen Book also shows you how to enter the meeting feeling confident, calm and being your authentic self. Feelings of nervousness, desperation and inauthenticity will be eliminated. The things you learn from this book, once you get the hang of it, can also make a profound impact on your personal life.

Excellent Eye opening system on human behavior in the entertainment industry. Extremely helpful for any actor in or out of the business.
I bought this copy for a friend since I don't want to loan the one I have or chance losing it.

A lot of what Stephen talks about I had come across in other books, but here he goes step by step and proposes many exercises. This book is not just to read, but to do. You can read it, but you will need at least one other actor to get it going. Having said that I got a lot out of it, and I believed has helped me in the room.

Mr Book offers a fresh approach to the world of actor meetings, his advice can also translate to social settings, both professional and personal. His technique leads to a spontaneous, energy filled interview where ones personality can really shine. It's great to go in to an interview with a game plan, instead of being at the mercy of the interviewer.
Book suggests that you act abruptly and rather rudely if you have a meeting with an agent and even get up and walk out the second you've decided you're done. I had an audition with one and tried that approach. It was absolutely the wrong thing to do because the agent wanted to engage with me as a person -- not some robotic clone which is what you get from Book's idea of how you should behave. Fortunately I was able to save the day and got signed despite his lousy advice. Best advice is to be professional but be yourself.
