Publisher's Summary

Foreword by Academy Award-winner Mahershala Ali

An internationally renowned and highly sought-after Hollywood voice coach shares proven practices to help anyone utilize the often-untapped power of their own authentic voice.

From a toddler's first words to professional public speaking, from a marriage proposal to asking for a raise, our voice is our most crucial instrument of expression. The world judges us by our voice. And yet there has been no authoritative guide to mastering its full capacity and expressing our true selves in every aspect of life, from relationships and family to work. Until now. 

As one of the nation’s most sought-after vocal coaches, Denise Woods has worked with everyone from Mahershala Ali, Will Smith, and Idris Elba to Kirsten Dunst and Jessica Chastain. In The Power of Voice, for the first time ever, Woods shares the secrets, tips, lessons, and stories that have helped Hollywood’s biggest stars become confident, effective communicators. 

Listeners will learn how to: 

  • Articulate clearly
  • Gain confidence in any situation
  • Release tension and stress
  • Address speech issues such as upspeak, vocal fry, and nasality
  • Become powerful public speakers
  • Find their truest form of expression

With her unmatched ability to teach vocal mastery in real-world terms, Woods offers a much-needed, proven, practical, and invaluable set of tools that will forever change how we communicate and, ultimately, how we see ourselves and affect others.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

An autobiography, not a useful guidebook.

The description of this book very, very clearly suggests that it is a practical guide to improving one's speech and articulation. It is not. It is essentially "I am a proud African american woman from the projects", followed by 10 hours of humble-bragging.

Denise hits the nail on the head!

I teach high school seniors and at the end of the year they do an oral presentation in front of their peers. I was excited when the WSJ offered this book as an option. We listened to a significant portion of the book, as well as Mr. Ali's introduction. Having already watched the movie "Green Book" and listening to his elegant diction, they could identify the impact Ms. Woods on his communication. They really liked the emphasis on "tell your story" even in a formal oral presentation. Thanks, Denise!
