When someone is giving me advice or directions I want it brief and direct. In other words, show me the bottom line. Ten Minutes to the Audition, by Janice Lynde, is one that meets those important requirements. Lynde's book is directed at preparing for the audition but the advice is also applicable in many ways to applying for a job.

Lynde provides a checklist consisting of twenty concise do's and don'ts to a successful audition and the sound reasoning behind them. Throughout the book are brief stories that use word pictures to explain and support the checklist. Also included is a section titled: The Four Knows. It is also a section you must have.

Armchair Interviews says: This is a small, handy reference book that can be carried in your bag. If you are a performer or want to be, it you would serve you well to read and keep the book. In fact, it should be placed on your reference shelf. Do not loan it out because it will never be returned. I guarantee it. Let your friends buy their own.
