I'm one of those who honestly felt that I had got my $... worth and then some in the first five minutes of working with this book. I've sung in bands and theatre with moderate success but always been frustrated at the entirely hit-or-miss nature of my grasp on 'how to sing'. It's never been something I 'do', but rather something I can 'usually get away with'. Love's book helped guide me in short order to a part of my voice that I've found on occasion on my own (usually in the car, or occasionally an inspired moment on stage, but almost never simply 'on demand') which I now realize is the middle voice he refers to in his book.
Are there other ways to get there? No doubt. Is he first and only instructor to speak of this sort of thing? Of course not, but he's the VERY FIRST who managed to reach ME despite myself. Does that mean he will reach you as well? Who knows, but I'd say it's a pretty safe gamble you will take away something from this book and cd in short order if you approach it openly and with a good sense of humor.
His simple device of using the 'cry' and whatnot have proved invaluable to me in 'remembering' how to find that sweet spot instead of shouting myself hoarse with vocal groping and frustration. Think Robert Smith or Danny Elfman to get an idea of how the 'cry' can sound. It's kind of a vocal 'shoe-horn' to get you into middle voice. Once you start to get a feel for this, the goofy images like 'think of your voice as a purple mist flowing--blah de blah de blah' start to actually become useful as you start to feel and hear when you're going from chest voice to head voice and/or somewhere in between.
Good luck and have fun with the book. Really accentuate the cry when you get to that part.

Format: Hardcover
The book 'Set Your Voice Free', by Roger Love, one of most famous and most in-demand vocal coaches in America, is a real godsend to those who rely on their voice for professional purposes (hmmm, why would a preacher need that?). Co-authored by Donna Frasier, this book explores techniques for preserving, strengthening, and extending the vocal power and range of the reader/practitioner.
There is a forward by Dr. Laura Schlessinger--whether or not you agree with her opinions, you must admit she has vocal presence on the radio. This book will not turn you into Dr. Laura (in any respect!) but it will help you achieve the voice that you are capable of having, but simply did not gain the instruction to unleash.
Why is speaking important? While this many seem a question with an obvious answer, it is usually an unexamined one. The right voice can make a business presentation or sales pitch more dynamic, and make the difference between closing the deal and walking away empty-handed. The right voice can win the man or woman of your dreams over to a first date. Even if you just want to sound better on your answering machine, this is book that will help.
Think you can't carry a tune in a bucket, and that this is because you don't have musical training? Guess again. With simple exercises in this book, you will be singing along in no time with much less self-consciousness and more self-confidence, which in-and-of itself can make a difference in how you sound.
It comes with an instructional CD with vocal exercises to follow. From simple breathing exercises (yes, there is a right way to breathe) to more specific practice routine, you will have material to follow to help you unlock the hidden potential of your voice. The sound you make will be richer, more fully rounded and developed.

Format: Hardcover
I've been focused on becoming a better singer for close to a year now with so-so results. During this time, I came to realize that speech rolls over into singing quite a bit. With this in mind, I picked up the book "Set Your Voice Free" a few weeks back in order to become better with speech and see if I could improve my singing abilities. What a revelation! I not only found the information I needed to help in speech, but also a wealth of information on singing. I had heard before of "Middle Voice" and how important attaining the proper setup for it is, but until I read this book, I never knew what it actually "felt" like. Now, the reason all of the gigs I've had were hit and miss became very clear to me as I realized that middle voice was what I was really after all of those times I'd tried finding that freedom and power that would only come once in a blue moon. I've only been studying this book for a few weeks now, but I feel I'm moving forward at warp speed. We had a gig a couple of weeks back, and our band received wonderful response. I know a lot of that was due to the new found knowledge I'd gained in freeing up my voice and finding middle. This was after only one week of applying the information I'd found within this book. I have a long way to go, but I feel I'm on the right path (finally) due to Mr. Love's clearcut teaching methods for turning around bad habits and reinforcing proper ones in both speech and singing. I strongly recommend this book to all speakers/singers, or anyone who wishes to gain more freedom in how they express themselves.
