In the 1920s the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.

What made the experience of listening to Rodney Saulsberry's Tongue Twisters and Vocal Warm-Ups the most enjoyable?

If you are a voice actor, singer, public speaker, teacher, etc. you use your voice right? Then you need this book! I have the hard copy in my studio and the audible copy on my phone. It is a MUST have. It will not only teach you a lot about your voice and how to exercise it and use it to its fullest, but Rodney Saulsberry is a true pro and loves helping folks like you and me to be as good as we can be with our voice!

What did you love best about You Can Bank on Your Voice?

It's a book that you can, and should, refer too often to help improve your craft.

What was one of the most memorable moments of You Can Bank on Your Voice?

Smiling at myself when doing some of the tongue twisters...but when he said one of the best warm-ups was to "yawn"...well, that's my favorite!

What does Rodney Saulsberry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I've read and listened to the book and both are invaluable. But in the audio you hear his passion for the craft.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Too many to list, really. It just moves you enough to want to hear it again.

Any additional comments?

Anybody who is in voice over, public speaking, broadcast, or anything that requires the spoken word will absolutely benefit from this great book.

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

It was just a little too technical for me, but it had a lot of humor though as well.
