I am an improv teacher at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NY and I recommend this book to students all the time Will Hines is incredibly thoughtful practical and clear in his explanations and examples used to illustrate and explain long form improv concepts that can be confounding to studentsAs a teacher the book has been very useful It includes loads of exercises that pinpoint how to increase skill levels in specific aspects of improv in scenic and fun ways When I teach an exercise from this book I can visibly see realizations about their approach wash over students facesThere are a few improv books out there nowadays but I believe this one is the greatest it s written by a teacher for students with much consideration and that is felt throughout Highly recommended
