Invaluable (and fun to listen to) resource

A wealth of information presented in a friendly, sometimes tongue-in-cheek way. Bought the paperback, as well. Unbelievably thorough section on body and vocal warm-ups and tongue-twisters.

Great listen!

I got this because I am trying to get more into VO work. Both Yuri and Tera give great advice and perfect reading in this audible format.
I plan on buying the book and going through it again because there's some good visuals on script reads.

I hope to one day to be on their level of knowledge and get the opportunity to be able to work with them!

BTW Highly recommended this listen!

Filled with valuable information!

I'm not finished yet with this book but so far have been taking great amounts of notes, been practicing exercises, and have been changing the way I look at this profession in a good way! I even bought the audio version so I can listen to it during my busy schedule driving around town! I can't recommend this book enough!

A must read

This is full to the brim with information and helpful study. It is so good I listen to it over and over and wish they would do another book. Maybe dive more into voicing Animes and MoCap work. Ether way, I could listen to them endlessly....even if I only hear Spider-Man reading it. ;)

A must listen for anyone in voice acting

This is the kind of book that I will keep coming back to. Brilliant narration by the authors, both awesome voice actors. I learned a lot just from listening to their narration style. I am going to need to get the kindle edition as well because the resources section at the back was difficukt to follow. I thought the audio book could definately be improved with a PDF download of the charts and exercises

Great listen even if you are not into voice-over!

I bought this book so that it will help me in general with the way I speak on podcasts and as a keynote speaker. There was plenty for me there. Also, the technical side for professionals is also very detailed.

Always love to listen to books narrated by the authors themselves and if the authors happen to be the masters of their trade, it certainly the next level.

Highly recommended!!

P.S: there is no PDF attached to this book but there is downloadable zip file on the website with all the info from the workbook.

A book for everyone interested in Voice Acting.

This book is a great foundation starter for anyone starting out in the world of voice acting and narration. Mainly written for the north American market but you will still find lots of useful hints and tips where ever you are In the world. Highly recommended book. I will buy the paperback now.
