In To the Actor Michael Chekhov has recorded brilliantly the results of his many years of experimenting, testing and verifying in the professional theater and schools of the theater. He brings to actors far greater insight into themselves and the characters they are to portray, which enables them to approach any role with new ease and skill. “To the Actor is by far the best book that I have read on the subject of acting. Actors, directors, writers and critics will be grateful for it. It should prove enlightening to theatergoers who wish to deepen their appreciation for fine acting and thus help to invigorate the theatrical art.”—Gregory Peck “I think without a doubt every creative person in the theater will want to have it as a constant reference book, outside of its being, in my opinion, absorbing and entertaining reading.”—Yul Brynner (from the Preface) “One of the most remarkable and practical books on the technique of acting I have ever read....Enthusiastically recommended to all theatre collections of whatever size.”—Library Journal
A disciple of Konstantin Stanislavski and a member of the Group Theatre in the 1930s, the noted actress and teacher offers advice on acting preparations, the demands of characterization, and dramatic exercises, as well as personal memories

Mr. Arturi explaining young people “The Content of the Book” Mr. Arturi: you will learn the technique that I and the great Hollywood actors mentioned on the cover and others use to create a character for a movie and how to enter to work in the world of movies without complications This technique is used by these actors and approved by the audience They briefly and partially describe their techniques in the program "Inside the Actors Studio" on Bravo Channel, where you can watch the videos at any time I explain you the technique in a very easy way, with all the essential elements and many details that they don't mention You learn to express the true feelings of your character in a movie, and not to fake them, screaming and/or with voluminous gestures as taught in many acting schools You’ll learn the technique from A to Z; that is, A is when you start reading the book, and Z is at the end of your training when you'll be ready to act the protagonist in a professional movie. Guaranteed! THE WARRANTY While you are training, you can watch the interviews of the actors and verify if it's what they comment You don’t need acting experience, just an inexpensive camcorder, the book and the desire to become a professional actor, that's it My students say that the exercises are entertaining, fun and very easy to learn; you just read and shoot the practice scenes The ideal is to make an acting / filming team; it takes 3 people, 2 in front of the camera and one shooting the scene and you go rotating positions Also, I explain you an easy way to shoot scenes, as you see in the movies, that even a child can do it Mr. Arturi adds: VERY IMPORTANT: my system allows you to learn the technique without a teacher, I give you the elements for self-control and correction; the "why" and "how" to do it is explained in the chapter "The John Travolta Test” A student: What do I do after learning the technique? How do I become a professional actor? Mr. Arturi: In it I explain you the ESSENTIAL steps to enter the world of movies and be a successful actor; and MOST IMPORTANTLY, how to avoid the setbacks that inexperience could bring, and prevent you from spending years wandering and hoping for success. It takes years for new actors to gain the experience that you will gain in no time learning this technique Mr. Arturi concludes: In my book you will not find stories, anecdotes, metaphors, unrelated issues or useless exercises to "entertain", which is what you find in most books on the same subject that authors use as "book fillers", and in acting schools as “hour fillers" for lack of a solid technique to teach If you want or dream of being a professional actor, my book gives you all the elements to achieve it. Guaranteed! (But it’s up to you) Mr. Arturi’s challenge: find in the world an acting school or a book that offers 25% of the material contained in my book, you will not find it Mr. Arturi: if you don't want to be a professional actor, but you would like to learn the technique, you can use it as the base of a game to play with friends, some of my students like to do, and they say it is a very funny game to play Later your team will get in contact with other groups created in schools and universities to compete This idea is developed in the chapter "My dream" Mr. Arturi’s conclusion: you learn the real Hollywood movie acting technique, save a lot of money, not waste years in acting schools or workshops, and you work as a professional actor in a short amount of time Q: Why your book with such important content is so inexpensive? Mr. Arturi: I wrote it for various reasons: for my love to teaching, to young people and to movie acting, NOT TO MAKE MONEY; and also to help young people not to lose years in school and go into debt with creditors to pay courses, and for others to use the technique as a healthy fun game.
