I purchased this book coming from the angle of a singer who wants to learn as much as possible about the way the voice functions, including gaining an understanding of the way the speaking voice influences the singing voice.
I'm about a third of the way through and I'm already chuffed to bits. The authors have managed to make voice work a delight...everything is explained in a comprehensive yet simple way. The photographs illustrate thier points well, and the accompanying cd is also really useful...the two work well in tandem to one another.
I am also currently reading works by Cicely Berry and Patsy Rodenburg which are fantastic but if I were to recommend an ideal book for beginners it would be this one for the ease of use and the fact that the layout makes an initiation into voice work an unintimidating, (dare I say it..?) ENJOYABLE experience.
