Brandstein, an independent producer and former casting director, offers an insider's guide to achieving success as an actor. Included is advice on how to discover if you have the ``right stuff'' to be an actor, as well as tips for auditioning and dealing with rejections, and career-winning strategies in networking and presenting yourself with a confident style right for you. This book makes an excellent companion to David Craig's On Performing ( LJ 5/1/87), which is directed to actors, singers, and dancers in the musical theater. Those who are seeking a career in the theater should find both books invaluable. Recommended for theater arts collections in public and college libraries. Howard E. Miller, M.L.S., St. Louis, Mo.
