I read this book in college and hated it with the fiery passion of seven suns. I don't know what possessed me to pick it up again, but I'm glad I did. It's a lot less wacked-out than I remember, and actually helped me out with some vocal issues I've been having lately.

Very easy to read as most of the book are exercises to do and the book is short. I didn't realize that tight neck muscles, tongue is too tense and breathing through nose aren't optimal.
