Like all solid programs you have to learn and use the ideas recommended to get the results you want.
Tom Borg
Honestly, he makes some good points, and though he seems to pad and is perhaps a little puffy in the ego department, he knows his stuff.
Seven Kitties
VOCAL POWER convinced me that the quality of my voice makes a huge difference, and then taught me what I can do about it.

Yes, a lot of his material is either culled from his other works or from any of your basic Dale Carnegie 'how to win friends and influence people' self-help genre. But let's face it: that last genre hasn't come out with an original concept in about 10 years, so maybe we shouldn't blame a voice-coach for not offering any terrific new insights?

I bought this because every semester when I start teaching, I go from talking almost not at all to talking 5-7 hours a day, and my throat was *raw* and I had no voice left. It was, then, a desperation purchase. I figured if it could help at *all*, it would be worth the money in future semesters without the ouchie. While his other stuff mostly concentrated on singers and their interests, this is totally focussed on public speaking, which was spiffy. I've a decent singing voice but it had no crossover to the endurance or quality of my speaking voice, until now.

Honestly, he makes some good points, and though he seems to pad and is perhaps a little puffy in the ego department, he knows his stuff. Since I started using it (yeah, I got irked by the lack of utility of CD 1 but I pressed on ahead), I've been more aware of how I breathe when I speak (which is different from pranayama, as another reviewer tries to relate it to), and that there *is* a way to take the brassiness out of my voice. FINALLY!! So if you endure, and be patient with him in the first CD, I promise you, it'll pay off. My voice doesn't hurt at the end of the day any more, and I'm paying more attention in how I say things (melodically, etc). I don't have much use for his 'fear of public speaking'--I've never had that. But just because it's not something *I* find useful, that doesn't mean that someone else would find that part of the program useful.

Format: Audio CD
This Audio book is very similar to his regular book called "Set Your Voice Free". Although this book seems more geared towards speakers while the other seems more geared towards singers.

A lot of information about developing your voice (breathing, overcoming undesirable vocal traits, finding your middle voice) was also in his regular book called "Set Your Voice Free". There are a lot of passages that are copied word-for-word. A lot of the vocal exercises are identical. I found that information very helpful.

Some information, that is not in "Set Your Voice Free", deals more with pyschological mumbo jumbo about developing a postive mindset. Like overcoming your fears by telling yourself "they want to hear me. They love me". Or overcoming your nervousness by simply being prepared. I don't know whether this information is useful or not.

So if you get one book, you could probably just skip the other.

Roger Love demonstrates magnificent vocal coaching skills and how-to techniques in this "must have" resource for anybody who speaks publicly (including teachers, sales professionals, speakers, broadcasters, voiceover pros, managers and others).

Anybody who's good enough to be Tony Robbins' voice coach is certainly worth learning from, was my thinking when I first decided to get this program. And Roger overdelivers with a great variety of techniques (and inspiration and insights to learn from) in this "vocal coaching masterpiece".

In addition, he's got a very interesting voice, so he's easy to listen to; no dry monotonous academic training here - in addition to the superb exercises he does out loud for you w/piano, his vocal style and range is exceptional, and interesting to listen to - which makes learning that much better and more effective.

I've had voice coaches, been a public speaker for 20 years, and this is certainly something I wish I'd had earlier in my career - and it's helping me to this very day. Roger is inspirational, he's helpful, and his techniques *work* with stunning results. I'd easily have paid $200 for the content in these cds, it's a remarkable value from one of the world's very top vocal coaches. Superb job - thanks Roger!

Highly recommended.

-Ken

p.s. other public speaking resources I recommend are Lily Waters and Brian Tracy; they've got superb books/cds/videos on the topic of public speaking as well; one thing I really appreciate about Roger's course is that it also gives you vocal exercises to strengthen your voice, eliminate problems with your delivery, and expand your vocal range. A++

I never realized how much impact the sound of my voice has on how I communicate, how I come across to others, and how I feel about myself. VOCAL POWER convinced me that the quality of my voice makes a huge difference, and then taught me what I can do about it. I never really thought I could do much to change my voice, but it turns out there's a lot I can do, without too much effort. Best of all, it works!

Roger Love is the vocal coach to several big starts and bestselling speaker/authors, and as he explains how all of us can tap into our natural charisma you can hear why he works with such high-powered, successful clients. He is totally engaging and inspiring, demonstrating all sorts of things on CD that you could never get across so effectively in a book. And he's not afraid to sound a little goofy when it helps him make an important point.

Now that I've listened to all seven CDs and done the exercises, my speaking voice has a clarity and resonance I never thought I could have. Most important, I've learned that I feel more confident when I sound more confident. As a result, even though it focuses only on the voice, VOCAL POWER is one of the most inspiring, empowering self-help or programs I've ever heard.
