The Improv Mindset is a guide to learning how to perform the art of improv, not only as an actor but in everyday life.
Many times, a ‘how-to’ book is boring. However, ast-paced and entertaining, and I learned a lot.
Not only does it explain how to do improv, but it gives quick and easy exercises to get better at the craft. The author expands on the craft to include how improv relates to life. The author does a fantastic job of bringing the world of improv into the world of every day. We all improvise every day, and using the exercises within this book can help us overcome the fear and embarrassment that can result. My favourite chapter is dedicated to addressing the reasons you think you can’t do improv and explaining that the fear which holds us back is a blip in our worlds.
There are some editing mistakes, but they don’t take away from the valuable information in the book.
Overall, this is an excellent book if you want to learn improv or how to improvise in life.
