Joanna Cazden, MFA, MS-CCC EVERYDAY VOICE CARE: THE LIFESTYLE GUIDE FOR SINGERS AND TALKERS  

This book updates and expands on my 2007 title "How to Take Care of Your Voice," which the Voice and Speech Review called "a must-have for anyone with a voice." Neither a dry medical text nor a florid vocal arts method, it covers practicalities from cold symptoms to cell-phones, loud parties to lozenges, warm-up routines to warning signs & when to see a doctor. "Clear and articulate," said Lis Lewis of American Rock Star; "looks like an excellent addition to the literature" - Robert M. Sataloff, the Voice Foundation.
