Publisher's Summary

Stop Acting, Start Living is the culmination of 35 years of performing and teaching experience around the globe. Hollywood Acting and Success coach Bernard Hiller has worked with Jeff Goldblum, LL Cool J, Lindsay Lohan, Billy Crystal, Chace Crawford, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Emilio Rivera among many others. Bernard coached Cameron Diaz for her first big audition The Mask with Jim Carrey, which launched her career. His revolutionary techniques have changed the course of lives and careers. There has never been a book available that takes the acting techniques of a Hollywood star-maker and teaches business people how to become stars in their lives and careers. Bernard is the only coach who combines acting technique, life coaching, and success training in an entirely new and transformative way. Leonardo DiCaprio, CAA, Samuel L Jackson and other stars have recommend him as the premier acting teacher in town. Casting Director April Webster (Star Wars)... I have seen firsthand how his techniques instantly improves your talent. Academy Award Nominee Bruce Dern. There is no class like it in America.

Exactly what you need to hear

If you could sum up Stop Acting, Start Living in three words, what would they be?

Revolutionary - Brilliant - energizing

Any additional comments?

This book is very refreshing. Gets you to see acting with a different perspective and opens you up to the reality of acting. It will without a doubt light up that flame inside of you and keep it burning. There is a reason why we call Mr. Hiller the star maker. Read his book, listen to it, it will make you happy and leave you wanting more.

A must have!

This book should be a staple on your library shelf and then shared with everyone you know! My son and I have been fortunate enough to meet Bernard Hiller and take his Los Angeles master class together. Bernard not only helped us become authentic with ourselves, but authentic with each other. I've loved all my children since the day they were born, but after his master class I had no idea that I had the capacity to love on an even deeper level! Even though I have been to his classes I still pull this book out every time I need a little pick me up. I now produce and direct my own successful shows in Hollywood C.A. Opening my own theatrical company is something I never fathomed I was capable of doing before I met Bernard Hiller. I can now say with confidence that I LIVE AN OSCAR WORTHY LIFE! Do you? Do you want to? Well then what are you waiting for... buy this book 😊

I recommend this audio book to aspiring actor as it helps you realize what you really want in your acting career and also to acknowledge the pros and cons. Bernard is very accurate in his description of the industry.

Even better than the book!

I bought and read the book in preparation for an upcoming Masterclass with Bernard. I was advised to buy this audio as well, because it would be 'even better'.

I can totally attest to the fact that it is! Bernard's passion and energy pours out of every word. Having this audio now allows me to better use my 'dead' time (driving, walking, train journeys) and has already massively changed my life in a profound and positive way!

If you are serious about becoming the best actor you can be, invest in this!
