"Audition" by Michael Shurtleff, "The famed broadway and hollywood casting director reveals everything an actor needs to know to get the part".

So right now you must be asking yourself "Why should I read a book about how to succeed in an audition for a play when I'm a programmer?"

This is a fanstastic book about theater and so about human relationships. At first level you'll be surprised how an audition is close to an interview and how Shurtleff advices can be useful for us all. Next you'll see relations, intentions and stories in a all new way.

Since I read this book, I can't stop recommending it...

Cool! Never would have thought to read Audition. I wish it was available on Audible.

At least it's available on Kindle. On Audible it would be such a hard work to do but for sure it can be awesome :)
