    The first half of this book was SUPER HELPFUL to me as a singer. Lots of anatomy and basics of how things truly work in the larynx, which is more important than I realized. Know Thy Instrument! The second half of the book, however, when it came to surgeries and procedures, felt very opinionated as they moved from a "everyone should get to know their own voice and do what works for them because every person and voice is different" vibe to a much more "know it all" vibe.

The second half of the book, however, when it came to surgeries and procedures, felt very opinionated as they moved from a "everyone should get to know their own voice and do what works for them because every person and voice is different" vibe to a much more "know it all" vibe. As a person who has had vocal surgery, I know for a fact that some of their definitive answers are simply inaccurate. If the second half of this book was more generally informative and less "this is how it is, we know it all", I think that this could be a truly excellent text.

    A dry, academic title that focuses on potential vocal issues. But the first part of the book that explains the intricate physiology of the vocal system has take-aways. Good for anyone who uses their voice a lot and wants a better understanding of it.
