Sanford Meisner has been called "the theater's best-kept secret," and Sanford Meisner on Acting by Dennis Longwell gives some insight into what techniques the hugely influential drama teacher used in his 50-plus years of work. One of the founding members of the Actors Studio (with Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, and Harold Clurman), Meisner developed his own special lessons based upon his understandings of the great Russian teacher Stanislavsky.

Sanford Meisner (August 31, 1905 – February 2, 1997), also known as Sandy, was an American actor and acting teacher who developed an approach to acting instruction that is now known as the Meisner technique. While Meisner was exposed to method acting at the Group Theatre, his approach differed markedly in that he completely abandoned the use of affective memory, a distinct characteristic of method. While Meisner was exposed to method acting at the Group Theatre, his approach differed markedly in that he completely abandoned the use of affective memory, a distinct characteristic of method acting. Meisner maintained an emphasis on "the reality of doing", which was the foundation of his approach.

I had to read this in high school in my theatre class. After my senior year I donated it to the school. I didn't realize I would still need this as an reference after high school so I bought it again.

I read this to get a better understanding of Meisners technique and hope to learn something new. It wasn't my style at all.
Though there are some gems here I took to heart about preparing, listening and emotion.
This is not a very encouraging book and he seemed very arrogant.
Overall a discouraging read.

I read the entire book. Meisner is funny as hell. He is real and is not afraid of being transparent with the students he taught. My favorite lessons was using the imaginary "as if" which helps a whole lot and the repetition exercise which gets you out of your head and into "living under imaginary circumstances". It gets you to react to the other person which is vital if you want to make a scene in a movie or play seem legit. If you read this book, and you should, use a high-lighter and take some notes. Loved it!

Sanford Meisner is one of the greats in the acting field. He shows his ability to teach and inspire. This book is also very well-written and understandable, even to the novice actor. Thank you Sanford, for thinking about your fellow actors enough to help them along their way.

This is a thorough book and essential for anyone who wants to study the craft of acting. I recommend it as well as other classic texts. It is important to remember that most techniques are aiming towards the same goal...truth in acting. Actors should try many techniques until things click.

Un acercamiento sensitivo, inteligente y analítico a la vez, de como extraer una performance realista y conmovedora a partir de elementos dramatúrgicos que el profesor Meisner explica, desarrolla y contribuye a lo largo de sus clases.

Muy entretenido de leer.
