The first edition of Hitting Your Mark was subtitled, 'What every actor really needs to know on a Hollywood Set.'  The second edition, as you see, deals also with the life of an actor. The technical information from the first book is still there but here we get into the intellectual and emotional sides of acting for a living. How far can you go? How good can you get? How do you deal with rejection and lack of security? How do you prepare to give yourself the best chance of success and actually enjoy yourself along the way? … and much more.
