This is a self-help manual for actors who want to train and develop their voice. Opening with advice on how to use the book and how to prepare our bodies, the author then takes us step-by-step through the constituent elements that make up the voice and the sounds we make with it. Each chapter starts with a brief introduction, then sets out the sequence of relevant exercises, accompanied by simple diagrams, and ends with a summary of what has been learned.
