Format: Paperback
An inspiring book. A bit "luvvie-ish", but highly readable, and filled with practical advice and exercises which really work. (It's a bit awkward trying to do the exercises whilst simultaneously holding the book, but the same can be said of any other book of this nature). Very user friendly, and as I said, the exercises are effective and you'll notice the difference quite quickly (or your friends/family will). Learn how to shout at your children/pets/husband all day every day without straining your voice! Project your words of wisdom clearly through a locked bedroom door and a pillow over the head! No-one will ever be able to claim that they didn't hear you ask them to empty the dishwasher ever again! You'll also find that your posture improves and the relaxation exercises result in your feeling less tense and anxious. (Or is that because no-one can ignore you any more? ) Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
Although nearly twenty years old, this is the book I would most recommend to students, actors and voice tutors.
What I like best is her discussion of the right to speak and how to go about it in any walk of life where public speaking is required. She is very good at analysing fears about speaking in front of an audience.
You have to work with this book both in thinking along with the first section and how it applies to you, and going through the exercises in the second part. She makes the self analysis much easier than writers of other books in this genre, and the self-teacher can check their strengths, weaknesses and progress without too much effort.
Teachers of Speech and Drama should have this book constantly to hand, as it covers essential areas of voice and speech in performance that a trainee performer needs, but which are often covered in insufficient detail in board syllabi.
Not only are the exercises comprehensive and useful, but there are also ideas on the development of their usage with specific texts and acting situations.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is sure to be a few years yet before it is superseded.

I have yet to finish this book but so far it is an excellent read. It has explained the reasons behind vocal habits and as far as I can see goes on to explain how to 'correct' them or rather how to find your own voice rather than creating a voice that others percieve as correct. I find it an easy clear read with an open honest approach and not full of technical jargon. A useful book for actors but also public speakers and those who wish to discover thier right to speak and be understood. Would highly recommend.

This book is a must for anyone working with young people or adults who have difficulty expressing themselves. It provides insight into why people may be having issues and helps the teacher/tutor find ways to alleviate problems and build confidence in the individuals approach to speaking. Amazing.

A classic text.... a must-have for actors but useful to anyone who uses their voice regularly in a professional or amateur capacity.
