If you have any experience with your voice, don't bother with this book.

"Voice Power" has some advice that is probably good, but it's buried in a mountain of meh where the author talks about how his advice comes from admiring Elvis and how the author knows all kinds of rock stars.

The advice in the book: breath through your belly, support your breath, let your voice resonate, emphasize (using volume, tone, elongated sounds, or silence) the things you want to emphasize, and match your audience. A
Finally an instructional book that doesn't conclude with "well, I guess, you know, whatever works for you". It actually gives INSTRUCTION!
Renee's editors should have taken out much of the parenthetical meanderings - or was a conversational tone what they were going for? If not, I would not have been comfortable enough to call the stranger who wrote the book by her first name. Okay, fine, it worked!
Excellent book for public speakers. The author makes you feel like you're at her workshop. Great skill builder.
