Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for every actor, performer, singer, theme park actor, or anyone doing outdoor stock! The book easly explains all aspects of the voice, problems , fixes and fundimentals of english language. Also the book does an excellent job teaching Phonetics. Rocco is now currently teaching at Unversity of Cincinnati College Conservitory of Music. He is a valuable addition to the OMDA division , and his pro active thinking is changing the department to make a more educated and hirable actor. If you dont have the chance to work with rocco this book is the next best thing !

I really like this book and I currently require it for my students in my speech classes. As a theatre professor, I've used many texts over the years and this seems the most practical and engaging. My one recommendation would be to purchase the CD that comes with it.

Delivery was prompt and everything was packaged up really well,
There was no dust cover, but that's just fine with me, I throw them out anyway.
This is just the thing that I needed for class!

Book is awkwardly shaped as well as it seems to encompass too much information. I feel there might be better books out there for what you're trying to learn
