Your Voice Is Your Business: The Science and Art of Communication combines the latest in voice research and technology with the most powerful, state-of-the-art presentation skills and methods. The result is an integrated and comprehensive approach to connecting the technically-based aspects of voice production with an applied, skill-based grasp of interpersonal effectiveness. The book serves as both a practical handbook and a resource on human vocal production in real world settings. Relevant techniques of positioning, gesture, and paraverbals are incorporated in the study of successful voice presentation. Technical information is integrated into the text and reviewed at the end of each chapter.

This second edition responds to the desire of readers for an expansion of the topics, illustrations, and techniques they found helpful in the first edition.

  • Helen Sjardin, VoicePrint, periodic newletter of the Australian Voice Association (VoicePrint 50 - August 2015):
    "What makes this such an accessible reference book is its clarity of terminology, provision of many examples, a lay-out that invites easy re-visiting or selection of topics by chapter division with a summary of key ideas at the end of each and a thorough reference list, final glossary and index. The strength of this book is the way it switches seamlessly from technical terminology to descriptive "lay" words then relates this to the reader's experience, reflection and application. . . . In summary, this book could be described as a practical, well-referenced handbook on vocal production and communication, valuable in the fields of speech-language pathology, communications, theatre, drama, public speaking and business."
