'Brilliantly guides the actor using exercises and tools that can revolutionise the voice. It's a boon!' --Joseph Fiennes
'Barbara's work is simple and practical, encouraging each actor to be free and fluid with their own voice... Very inspiring' -- Emily Watson
'Barbara has a great understanding of the way that actors' anxieties can affect their voice. Her tone is calm, reassuring and good humoured.' --Niamh Cusack
Encourages rather than intimidates the budding student... Barbara Houseman is inspirational in her obvious enthusiasm for her subject. --Times Literary Supplement
It is very hard to work on the voice from a book but Barbara Houseman has found a way to make it approachable and wholly possible - she calls it 'a step-by-step guide for actors'. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in spending a few minutes each day finding their 'own' voice. --The British Voice Association

text. The lay-out is unusual - clear and fun with little boxes adding information or exercises. I am finding it immensely helpful and interesting.
I teach too and it is helping with my own voice use and understanding of thevoice. I imagine it would be useful to anyone who uses their voice in pursuit of their work - teachers, politicians, interviewers, business people etc as well as being invaluable to actors and performers.
I highly recommend it.
