A straightforward book about how to sing better, and to live a more authentic life. Steve Smith is a bit of a genius.

As a student of singing (BYU '11) and a singing teacher for 8 years, this is the first technique that I've discovered that does ALL of the following: connects the passagi, produces the most colorful timbre, allows one to sing while sick or otherwise hoarse, extends the ranges, evens the vibrato, and is overall the most effortless way to sing.

This is an amazing book. My teacher has been working with me on these techniques. Now that I've read straight through the book I have that overview that helps me put it all together. Also just a great outlook on how to approach anything worth doing.
