The books are worth every cent
on July 26, 2013
The air and water diet, Vocal reset and Voice RX are 3 short books that belong together. The books are easy to read and the content easily understood. The books contain no references. This is simply the author's tips for solving various problems with your voice, which worked for him (and his students).
Both Voice RX and Vocal reset are probably useful tools for finding out what's wrong with your voice. The air and water diet is all about how you can easily obtain more energy. My experience is that voice problems often can be very complex, and I doubt you will find all the answers in these books.
At the same time, I like the author's view of what vocal health is about. Factors such as breathing, exercise, stress and what you put in your stomach I know from experience greatly affects your entire physical and mental health. This again is the foundation for a good vocal health.
In these three books Vendere systematizes this thinking for you, and give you a direction to work towards. But I think that these books are more a supplement to the larger book, Raise your voice, and that this book should be read first to fully understand the intentions of Vocal reset, Voice RX and The air and water diet. Much of the information in the three books can be found in Raise your voice. Vendere also refers to this book several times.
The subjects of the three books are narrow, and the books are short. The content is also partly old news. I therefor give Vocal reset, Voice RX and The air and water diet 3 stars. Put the price into consideration, and I think the books are worth every cent.
