Présentation de l'éditeur

More than 30 million Americans rely on their voices for their jobs--from teachers, religious leaders, and entertainers to lawyers, executives, salespeople, and doctors. A controlled voice increases self-confidence and enhances charisma, approachability, and trustworthiness. Yet an astounding 30 percent of professionals develop preventable vocal problems that could ruin their careers. And most do not know that both the quality and tone of one’s voice can be changed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For me, a noticeable improvement from a small investment in time and money 20 janvier 2013

I speak a lot. I've been a teacher, a lecturer, and a performer, sometimes all three at once. I even occasionally record my voice as part of reviews I post to Amazon. But I never had any formal training in how to speak. A few weeks ago I thought it might be a good idea, even at this late stage, to learn about what I've already spent a lot of time doing.

I chose this book for a couple reasons. Firstly, because of the reviews. Secondly, because it included an audio CD and I figured, with a book of this type, that could be real helpful.

When it arrived I took a somewhat unconventional approach, I listened to the CD first. They say up front that the CD is meant to accompany the book and not stand alone as a training tool. For me that wasn't completely true. I learned quite a bit just listening to it. Beyond that, the material in the book was more meaningful for having listened to the CD first.

What I learned were some simple rules and a set of small changes that, in my opinion, make a big difference in the way my voice and speech. (They're different... you learn that in the book :) )

If you haven't watched the video part of the review yet, it's meant to demonstrate the impact reading this book had on me. It provides a comparison of my recorded voice now with an excerpt from a recording I made a few weeks ago.

BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews, accompanied by detailed videos, can take the place of first-hand experiences that are often lacking in online shopping. I've always appreciated the help I've received from other reviewers and try to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and the video at least entertaining. If there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I'll do what I can to fix it.

For a long time, I have been attracted to a strong, low and clear voice. I like especially the feelings of energy and confidence coming from the person with that voice. The Voice Book by Kate DeVore and Starr Cookman is a well-written book that helped me understand how to get the voice. There are a good amount of easy and simple exercises in the book that make you feel a quality change in your voice. The book mainly educates us about details such as body alignment, low breathing, opening up a vocal tract and forward resonance (vibration ). A few chapters are also spent on methods and tips on how to protect and maintain voice. In addition, I particularly like that fact that the authors do not forget to mention psychological factors such as confidence and approachability. These factors could influence your relaxation of your body, which in turn facilitates the physical quality.

While I was reading this book, I came to understand that a great quality of voice should be produced in a healthy and relaxed way. Some of us mistakenly try to take on a low tone by forcefully lowering your voice. This is a mistake. It could make your voice sound fake or, in a worse case, injure your throat. A great voice, on contrary, can be achieved by "freeing your natural voice" with a little effort. This book shows how to do just that.

I picked up this book to learn to become better in communication. Having a greater sense of control over my voice allows me to communicate more delicately nuanced subtleties in social and business situations. "The Voice Book" was of great help for my specific purpose. But it will be as helpful for any other purpose since the book is written for anyone who cares about voice.

Finally, the book is accompanied by a CD. Just listening to the authors' voices, I was amazed by their powerful, beautiful and very clear voices. It just sounds as if there were a high quality stereo inside of their bodies. The moment I heard the voices, I just simply felt I got right people to rely on.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful tool 13 octobre 2009

As a speech language pathologist for over thirty years, I have read and used many voice books and manuals. This little book is a gold mine for professional voice users (singers, actors, teachers, attorneys, pastors, etc.)and for those who treat them. I heavily encourage my voice clients to buy it as an adjunct to - not as a substitute for - direct voice therapy. I bought it for local ENTs and one is recommending it to many of his patients. The book is quite user friendly and the CD is worth many times the cost of the book. The authors designed the CD quite effectively and present the exercies in such a light hearted way that they are not intimidating and are really enjoyable to complete. All for a little over $10.00!!!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a practical book, and a good reference 8 juillet 2009
Par l.east - Publié sur
I really appreciate the format of this book, which is easy to reference and makes a great addition to my library. I teach movement and physical theatre, and even though I have been doing this work for many years, I felt this book gave me a lot of clarity about voice and the body. I found it easy to incorporate this material into the material that I teach. I recently lead a workshop for dancers who wanted to improve their stage voices and this book was a valuable resource for me.

Interestingly, I choose the book for a teaching reference, but it has had a great influence on me personally. I am noticing that the author's approach to voice is helping me to be a better teacher... I am speaking more clearly to my students, and I am feeling a better and more confident embodied presence when I am speaking to a large group. This is not something that comes easily to me so I have enjoyed the insight and experience these author's have shared here. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Straightforward and Readable, but Thorough 30 juin 2009

I teach voice & speech on the university level and with private students in all walks of life, and this is a great book for both! I appreciate how accessible the information is for some of my private clients (everything from actors to lawyers to teachers). One of the issues I have with most of the voice books out there is that they're so dry or technical that it feels like I'm punishing my clients/students to recommend a text. This one is a very easy and enjoyable read.

The great balance, though, is that it's very thorough with the basic ideas that voice users need to know, but I LOVE the extra chapter at the end: "Extra Technical Information." They made it all very usable, and then end it with all of the technical stuff that my students can get into if they want it.

I'm also blown away by how cheap it is with the CD included... This is a great book for people to start with.
