Title mention in Bookseller Buyers Guide.

"Cofounders of the London-based improvisational theater company The Spontaneity Shop, Salinsky and Frances-White provide
a wonderful addition to the growing literature on theatrical improvisation. The book can serve as both a scholarly
resource, since it covers the history of improvisation from its beginnings to the present, and a practical guide, for
the beginner and advanced improviser... The authors include interviews with ten leading international improvisers, and
they conclude with an appendix that details many of the most common improvisational games used in academic and
professional settings. This book is a must for institutions supporting theater and performance programs. Summing Up:
Highly recommended. All readers, all levels." —S.W. Cole, CHOICE, January 2009
