Review

Everything's here: preserving your voice; when and how to use a microphone; projection; varying pace and pitch ... essential reading. -- Times Educational Supplement, 11 February 2005, Gerald Haigh.

From the Inside Flap

About This Book
The Voice is the primary means of communication yet we rarely think about the sound we make until there is a need to speak in public. This book describes the core skills needed to use the voice with confidence and clarity, concentrating on the essential techniques necessary to develop an effective vocal image.

The focus is primarily on presentations and teaching, rather than conversational speech, and is particularly relevant for business presenters, teachers, lecturers, professional speakers and trainers. The term 'audience' in this book refers to those listening to a presentation, pupils in a classroom, and students/delegates on training courses.

Technical jargon has been kept to a minimum and the aim is to provide structured advice and quick tips to help overcome common concerns and problems. There are numerous exercises which you can practise at your own pace, without this being too time consuming. Finally, the book explains how to look after and maintain your voice, and when you might need to consult a doctor.

Format: Paperback
The Vocal Skills Pocketbook is a good introduction for anyone who wants common sense advice about how to use their voice effectively when speaking in public. There are lots of easy exercises to do and also some useful examples (although a lot of them are related to teaching rather than presenting). The thing I appreciated was that the tips were quick, easy and the exercises were not too complicated or time consuming. This book does what it says in the blurb and does not blind you with science.

Hi there,

If you are even a little curious about developing your strongest tool for communication - your VOICE, then I would recommend this little pocket book as a good easy-to-read starter. It will give you a better understanding of the voice, how it works and more importantly tips on how you can improve it. It covers the basics and may whet your appetite to learn more.

Voice books, in general can be hard going if you just have a passing interest or are reading without practical guidance, but this is a nice little reference book you can stick in your bag or back pocket and read at your leisure or on the go. There are plenty of useful user-friendly exercises that will start you a very interesting journey of you own voice.
