Sooo NOT what i had hoped for, which was concrete, scientific facts to inform my singing. Instead, this book is a love fest for Enrico Caruso (who was a marvelous tenor, but also a heavy smoker!) and all things/people Italian, with few helpful suggestions. Had the redundancies been omitted, the book's length would have been halved. Frustrating!
