My favorite directing books:
General Principles of Stage Direction by Gilmor (published by Samuel French in the 1930's.  It's out of print, but you can probably find it on EBay or in a used bookstore near a college)
Directing for the Stage:  42 Exercises (the intro is quite boring, but the exercises are great!)
This suggestion was mentioned in the thread Books on Directing.
While I have done exercises as and for actors, I've never heard of exercises for a director.
Can anyone give an example without plagerism?
Have you taught or used any kind of directing "exercises"?
