Besides working as a casting director with Joshua Logan, Bob Fosse, Tom O'Horgan, Mike Nichols, Jerome Robbins, Gower Champion, Stuart Ostrow, David Merrick, and others, Michael Shurtleff still finds time to write plays and novels, direct films, teach his famous auditioning course, and regularly see at least a dozen plays and films every week. He does as he advises his readers- "Everyday learn. Learn enough so you can do good theater."
"What a book! Yet it's so simple that you learn without feeling it happen. Thank you, Michael; we needed it."-Joshua Logan
