Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I started using The Art of Voice Acting when I was teaching a Voice and Diction class as my acting school, and after reading [the] book, I restructured it into a "Voice Acting" class. The amount of free web links insdie is worth more than all the Voice Acting books on the market. I understand why it's considered the bible of Voice Acting. I have recommended it as "The" Voice Acting resource for my students and fellow aspiring voice actors ever since. I have [this] book to thank for the foundation of my training. Thanks Jim for inspiring me to pursue my Voice Acting dream!"

-David Letendre, voice actor and coach

"If there was ever a voice actors bible, this is it. James Alburger covers all the bases. From the business of voiceover to performance techniques, demos, marketing, and more. I've read it cover to cover multiple times... and have several copies as well! James and his book have helped my career immensely. No matter what stage of this great career you are at right now, The Art of Voice Acting is a must read."

-Chuck Davis, voice actor

"Required reading at my weekly Denver Voiceover Class is James' classic text, The Art of Voice Acting. Student at The Acting Studio get lots of value from his artistic guidelines and marketing tips. What a deal!"
