In The Right to Speak, renowned voice teacher Patsy Rodenburg teaches you how to meet any speaking challenge with total self-assurance. Rodenburg has trained thousands of actors, singers, media personalities, lawyers, politicians, business people, teachers and students in the art of using their voice fully and expressively without fear. She has taught them how to breathe, how to support their breath, how to stretch their voice to meet any vocal effort and how to have total confidence in whatever they say--"the right to speak."

5.0 out of 5 stars This makes complete sense of the voice. Oct. 22 1999
By A Customer
I have been working in the field of voice training for nearly 4 years now. This book remains a constant companion of mine which I have read and re-read. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in developing their own vocal freedom.
Once you have read The Right To Speak you will find it very difficult to ever listen to or view speech in quite the same light again.
If you know anyone who still believes that the only way to speak is to "speak properly", you need to buy them a copy of this book right away. The myth of the correct voice is truly exploded by Rodenburg as she "unpacks the box" in this book.
Read this book and discover both your expressive voice and your expressive self.

2.0 out of 5 stars round and round Jan. 26 2001
I was looking for a book which would give me several practical exercises to help improve the quality of my voice. I found the book poorly organized and the exercises do not come until 3/4 of the way through the book. It is not that clear which exercises to start with and the exercises refer back to philisophical points made in the first 180 pages. I did not want to have to wade through pages and pages of discussion about the voice and simply wanted a "how to."
This book is good if you are very interested in the subject of voice training and want to spend a lot of time thinking and reading about the voice. The exercises make up only one chapter, and there are not diagrams, or pictures for learners who are more visually oriented.

3.0 out of 5 stars Content is Magnificent. eBook is Disappointing. July 17 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hate to give this book such a low review because the content that Patsy Rodenburg supplies is top notch. She is a brilliant fore-runner in her field and this book is a permanent part of my collection.

My issue is with the eBook format being chock full of spelling and grammatical errors. Whatever program they used to import and convert the original text wasn't very good and it's clear that nobody proofread it because some of the errors were grave enough to impede comprehension, which was disappointing since I was really into the content.

Please, please, PLEASE fix this. In the meantime, I'm going to be looking for a physical copy to replace my digital one.

1.0 out of 5 stars a mess May 4 2004
By A Customer
A lot of gobbledy gook. Sounds like the author wants to be a therapist. 3/4 of the book is psycho babble. Exercises are not helpful. A waste of money.
