    Book review: The Open Door by Peter Brook

    Review of “The Open Door” by Peter Brook “The Open Door” by Peter Brook is a nonfictional performing arts book about some of the theatre practices Brook and his production teams have encountered, as well as Brooks own thoughts on these. I read “The Open Door” in Danish, so if anything got lost in the translation, I’d be happy to hear from others who’ve read it in English. I will however, review it in English, since I know it’s available in both languages (and others too I assume). “The Open Door” and Peter Brook Peter Brook is sort of well known in my professional circles. If someone I work with…

    Book review: The 4 hour work week

    Book review of The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris The 4 hour work week by Tim Ferris was first published in 2009 and promises an escape from the 9 to 5 day job.
