    Comprehensive and clear

    At last! A book about theatre singing that doesn't spout on about classical voice training. It's all relevant to what's required, and it all makes sense. Practical stuff to do, and no condescension. Not a book to read in a day, but there's much to ponder on. It's a great book to refer to over and over again. Buy it!
