'It is hard to find a thorough, practical book on voice work that is not too technical for the average actor. Barbara Houseman has written one. Finding Your Voice is a sensible DIY voice book that is also sensitive and understanding of the actor's needs... a clear, no-nonsense approach... It is very hard to work on the voice from a book but Barbara Houseman has found a way to make it approachable and wholly possible'* British Voice Association *
