I was lucky enough to study under both Edda Sharpe and Jan Haydn-Rowles at an acting school between 1999 and 2002. I was far from their best student, but I learned a great deal from their instruction and can testify to their capabilities as dialect coaches. I have since picked up their first two books, and there's literally nothing in them that isn't immediately practicable, or in some way insightful - the resource recordings available as mp3s are invaluable, as are the internet resources listed within the books.
The books are also funny and engaging, and very clearly laid out. I'd like to give a more 'balanced' review, but I can't fault them. I'll be referring to these books for the rest of my career and trust them implicitly.
