Such an amazing resource for singers and voice professionals!
Can't recommend this book highly enough! Dr. Reena Gupta does a wonderful job of breaking down the science of the voice and giving practical advice that people can begin applying immediately. I particularly enjoyed the section of the book where Dr. Gupta brakes down various misconceptions about the voice and/or voice remedies. The embedded videos and images are extremely helpful and such an amazing resource as well.
Wish more doctors had a book like this
Not the typical doctors book. Although detailed, the real life examples, and “straight talk” is really valuable for all singers and professional voice users. A very easy and interesting read!
An absolute must have for any voice user, professional or otherwise.
So I’ll get straight to the point. If you use your voice for anything such as singing, acting (or in my case yelling at the kids!!!!) this book is a must.
Dr. Gupta, somehow, manages to make nerdy medical jargon about the voice box interesting, or dare I say, captivating. The book is filled with medical and scientific facts intertwined with personal stories of the author and patients. It engages you while educating you at the same time about how best to preserve your voice. From early on you get a really good idea that she loves what she is doing and ,even more, she really wants the reader to learn how to care for his or her voice.
In short, the book is a fast and easy read, packed full of useful and practical information told in a personal and relatable way. Not your typical book about medical facts and definitely a must read for any voice user.
