Mr Hacker offers an invaluable set of skills for navigating the world of film auditioning. Every audition of my career, and indeed many times on the job, I have utilized his strategies. They are an excellent way to jump ahead of the pack and start with skills it takes others years to discover through trial and error.

Hacker's book is destined to replace Michael Shurtliff's 'Audition' as the auditioning guide for the 21st century. I use his methods every time I walk into the audition room and they never fail to leave a great impression.
