MEDIA REVIEWS
Cheerful, chatty and very informative...A readable heedable role-book, a fine fools' guide to improvisation, wherein lies plenty to plunder for those learning and teaching drama at all levels * John Hegley, poet and musician *
A wondrous toolbox for the imagination * Jake Arnott, novelist *
It's useful to be able to control yourself sometimes, and it's dreadful when it becomes a habit. The Improv Book is a treasure chest of ways to bring more zest, surprise and depth back into your life - and into the lives of your students, your employees, your children, your parents and anyone else who might need it. It's really very good. I just made that up. But it's true. * Guy Claxton, author of What's the Point of School? and Building Learning Power. *
Fabulous book, - humorous, instructive, informative - an absolute must-have for anyone interested in comedy and improvisation! * Brenda Gilhooly, comedian and TV writer *
In a world where imagination seems to be fighting a losing battle against technology, Alison Goldie has come up with a brilliant and easy to follow guide to putting people back in touch with this essential part of their creative minds...This book should be on the bloody national curriculum! * Phill Jupitus *
An absolute must-have for anyone interested in comedy and improvisation! -- Brenda Gilhooly, comedian and TV writer
