This book was written before current advances in science, stroboscopy, etc. and some of the information is outdated. The chapters on breath support and registration have some old info, but the book as a whole is full of wonderful ideas and strategies to support good vocal technique in clear language.

Recommends it for: anyone interested in the mysteries of singing!
I found this book to be incredibly interesting and not a little daunting. I never knew how complicated, nuanced and psychological the act of singing is. I understand now why people can spend a lifetime learning how to sing.
